Launched in 2002 by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership (MENTOR) and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, National Mentoring Month focuses national attention on the need for mentors, as well as how each of us—individuals, businesses, government agencies, schools, faith communities and nonprofits—can work together to increase the number of mentors to help ensure positive outcomes for our young people.
This campaign celebrates mentoring and the positive effect it can have on young lives. Its goals are to:
Raise awareness of mentoring in its various forms.
Recruit individuals to mentor, especially in programs that have waiting lists of young people.
Promote the rapid growth of mentoring by recruiting organizations to engage their constituents in mentoring.
Many opportunities exist locally for caring adults to become mentors. Golden House, for example, utilizes mentoring volunteers:
Mentorship plays such an important part in all of the work we do to help families heal after the trauma of domestic abuse.
When a family first comes to shelter, comfort and safety is paramount and our staff and volunteers provide a tour through the building to help familiarize the family with what they may need during their stay.
Our goal is for the facility itself to be warm and welcoming to all. Effort is put into the purpose and layout of rooms, the colors in them as well as the furniture and accessories. Having a common space for people to come together and share is also part of one's healing journey and so is quiet reflection. We seek out spaces that can accommodate both avenues toward healing.
Over the course of a family's time at Golden House they have the opportunity to be supported with job and housing searches, budgeting, cooking, homework and parenting classes to name a few. In addition, for the kids in shelter, we have a homework club, and game, crafts and movie nights.
Often mentorship comes in the common everyday things that most people take for granted. A simple conversation or an activity that encourages conversation like coloring, painting, baking and excercise are all ways we support the clients we serve.
Volunteer opportunities at Golden House include:
Front Desk/Crisis Support, Childcare, Facility Maintainence, Shelter Support, and Event Committees.
