#ThankYourMentor Campaign is Happening Now!

Tuesday, December 19, 2017

Who mentored you? We can all name people who have guided and supported us along the way. From now until the end of National Mentoring Month in January, join the national conversation dedicated to recognizing the important role mentors play in our lives. We'd like to ask YOU to share your story on your social media sites to show the power of mentoring and inspire potential volunteers to become a mentor.

Follow the steps below to participate:

  1. Download the Template from the National Mentoring Month's Webpage Here, and Print it Off .
  2. Write Your Message
    • Draft a short sentence about your mentor, beginning with “My Mentor…” on the sign on the next page. Print the sign.
  3. Take A Picture!
    • Take a picture of yourself holding the sign about your mentor – bonus points if you can take a picture with your mentor! We also invite you to take a video and share more of your story!
  4. Email to kay.wolfkill@iowaeda.com by January 5, 2018 at the latest.
  5. Share to Social Media!
    • Upload your image to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and include the phrase #ThankYourMentor in your post. Tag Iowa Mentoring Partnership and Volunteer Iowa or share it to their page. If possible, tag your mentor!
    • Be sure to take part in #ThankYourMentor day itself on January 25th, 2018. This day concludes the #ThankYourMentor campaign! Anyone with real life mentoring experiences can thank those who helped them on their path to adulthood and beyond is encouraged to share their story with the #ThankYourMentor hashtag.
