January is National Mentoring Month, and to celebrate, we want YOU - our community - to nominate friends and family members that you think would make a great mentor for a Bolder Options youth. Our BOLD goal is to receive 150 nominations by the end of January!
We know that some of the best mentors are also the least likely to think of themselves as potential mentors! Your nomination can plant a seed for someone who might be looking for a way to give back. Nominations also help Bolder Options start 2024 strong with a long list of prospective mentors!
Your nominee will receive a postcard or email letting them know that they were nominated (what a great way to brighten someone's day!) and will be invited to upcoming information sessions to learn more about Bolder Options and what it means to be a mentor with us. Simply click the button below to submit your first nomination!
To celebrate achieving our goal of 150 nominations, you and your nominees will be invited to a networking event in early February. Events will be held in both Rochester and the Twin Cities. Can you imagine gathering all of these great people in one place?! More details to come!
Other ways to help promote National Mentoring Month:
