Help us celebrate National Mentoring Month by sharing our mentoring program with your friends and family. While our mentoring program is off to a great start this year with two new volunteers in the process of becoming mentors, adding to our community of more than 40 active mentors, we still have 18 students on the waiting list. It’s our goal to match each of our students with a mentor in 2014 and YOU can help.

Every Friday in January we’ll feature segments called Mentors on Mentoring, in which one of our mentors will share about their mentoring experience with Casa Chirilagua. Help us find mentors for our 18 students on the waiting list by sharing our stories or your own story on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to tag or mention Casa Chirilagua in your post and we’ll share your story with our community.
