NBC12 VIEWPOINT: Everyone Needs a Mentor!

By: Kym Grinnage email

January is National Mentoring Month, and it's a good time to say thank you to all of you who have mentored or are mentoring young people, and it's also a good time to remind mentees to say thank you to your mentors.

If you've had a mentor in your life, you can really understand that a guiding hand from someone who has your best interest at heart is truly life changing. And the good news is that all of us can be a mentor to someone in need.

I would like to highlight three organizations that play a very important role in expanding mentoring in the Richmond Region and the state of Virginia:

Virginia Mentoring Partnership, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Mega Mentors.

Each of these organizations plays an important role in the mentoring process. So if you want to be a mentor, need a mentor or want to start a mentoring organization these organizations stand at the ready.

Go to: vamentoring.org, bigbrobigsis.com and megamentors.org

Be a mentor, there is a young person waiting for you!
