January is National Mentoring Month

National Mentoring Month (NMM) is the largest-scale mentoring campaign nationwide, culminating each year with the National Mentoring Summit. The campaign was launched four years ago by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership. This year will reflect on the incredible growth of the mentoring movement, recognize the real life mentoring relationships that form and thrive each day, and offer opportunities to thank the mentors who inspired us.

Up2Us Sports is proud to join this movement and highlight the power and impact of our own coach-mentors. For the month of January, we will be highlighting coaches from our program as well as hearing from our partner organizations about the impact that our coach-mentors have had on their programs.
