My team and I are up to our eyeballs in work preparing for the launch of the new program year. It is an exciting time as we ready to introduce a new visually attractive and functionally enhanced version of our platform, more in-depth trainings and overall higher quality service – something we strive for daily.
But it is a very stressful time – I sit here at almost 1:00 in the morning feeling guilty that I’m not working.
Instead, I’ve spent the better part of this evening reflecting on the power of mentoring. After a lovely conversation earlier with a potential volunteer to our program, I was reminded once again why there’s so much value in the work that we do.
Our small team with a large footprint works to match caring professionals across the country with junior and high school students who are in need of mentors. In need of someone to connect with them personally, someone to cheer them on, and someone to guide them to understand the link between life in school today and life in the real world tomorrow.
I’ve been more than blessed to have had that growing up. Some kids never will. And that’s simply unacceptable.
That’s why I invite you (if you happen upon this post) to join us at iCouldBe to learn more about how your one hour a week can potentially change the course of a student’s life.
And you can do it from the convenience of your home or office. All you need is an internet-enabled computer.
Take a read through this mentor recruitment post. Who knows? It might be just what you were looking for to leave your mark on this world.
