As we mark the 11th annual National Mentoring Month in Massachusetts, we are reminded of the tremendous work mentoring programs and mentors do to make a difference every day in the lives of youth. However, there are still thousands of youth across the state that are waiting to be matched.
Our partners at Staples have created a vibrant, educational infographic for National Mentoring Month that not only highlights the need for mentors but demonstrates the real impact that a match can have - on both the mentor and mentee.
