In partnership with American Student Assistance, MENTOR kicks off its Mentoring Amplifies campaign
WASHINGTON, January 5, 2021 /3BL Media/ – January is National Mentoring Month and this year, MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, is announcing its Mentoring Amplifies campaign in partnership with American Student Assistance (ASA). The Mentoring Amplifies campaign aims to honor the people who have helped shape the lives of young adults and helped them achieve their goals, ensuring that every student has equal access to opportunities like college, internships, clubs, sports, and more.
We know the story. We know that, while tremendous progress has been made, a significant mentoring gap still exists in America for young people. We know that students from families and communities enduring economic hardship are less likely to grow up with adult mentors outside their family. As a result, these students are less likely to graduate high school and go on to college. We’ve heard it before, and we’ll likely hear it again – unless we choose to act differently.
