January is Mentoring month in the United States.  President George W. Bush initiated January as National Mentoring Month back in 2002. Since then mentoring programs as well as prominent national leaders have participated in showcasing mentoring each January.  In 2009, President Barack Obama and General Colin Powell were featured spokesmen for Mentoring!

This month The Downs Group LLC will provide a variety of resources for you related to mentoring and coaching older youth, and especially for youth living in foster care.

During the month we will offer a variety of perspectives on mentoring, showcase some exemplary mentorship programs, give you helpful research digests, provide a couple of amazing guest blog articles by mentoring and coaching experts, and offer quotes from youth and caregivers about the kinds of mentoring they have experienced.

This month, to honor Mentoring, we are placing our “Mentoring Youth” Course on sale! If you would like this course delivered at your location by one of our expert trainers, you will get 33% off the list price if you place an order by January 31, 2018!

We also offer a Strategic Sharing event at your location. Strategic Sharing is an amazing way to focus on the challenges you may have encountered in your mentoring efforts!  Participants in these one-day event rave about the short- and long-term impact they experience because of what they learned.

We hope you take full advantage of what we offer this month!  Please share these resources with your colleagues!
