It’s National Mentoring Month

President Barack Obama has declared January 2012 National Mentoring Month, and calls upon “public officials, business and community leaders, educators, and Americans across the country to observe this month with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs.”

Here at Wake Forest University, our Mentoring Resource Center, led by Dr. Allison McWilliams, has developed a Mentor Toolkit, which contains tips and tools for developing effective relationships, leading discussions about mentoring, asking key questions, and providing feedback.

If you have a mentor who has made a difference in your life, please take the time to send them a note of thanks this month. I encourage you to visit our website for information on the Mentoring Resource Center and to learn more about this important month for both mentors and mentees!
