This Mentoring Month, let's work together to close Canada's Mentoring Gap.

Let’s work together to close Canada’s “Mentoring Gap” during #MentoringMonth.

Over 2 million young Canadians are growing up without a mentor - we need to change that. This January during #MentoringMonth, join Mentor Canada in raising awareness and momentum around the power of mentoring. Every young person needs and deserves access to mentoring relationships to ensure their successful transition into adulthood. 

Not only will we be leading discussions around “The Mentoring Gap” and rallying individuals, government bodies, schools and nonprofits to take part in the mentoring movement by sharing, learning, and getting involved, but we will also be asking Canadians to guide the way by becoming a mentor today.

#MentoringMonth is the perfect opportunity to rally our community and speak directly to the positive impact mentoring has on our youth. But talking about it isn’t enough. We need to act on it.
