January is National Mentoring Month! Mentoring guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Research suggests that youth who have a mentor are more likely to attend and be more engaged in school, finish high school and continue on to post-secondary education, and form more positive social attitudes and relationships.

If you are interested in making a difference in the life of a child and changing the world for the better, Lori Hughes, the WCSD contact for our mentoring program, will be happy to assist! Contact her at (850) 892-1100 ext. 1443
