November is #ThankYourMentor Month

November is #ThankYourMentor Month, a time to celebrate the power of mentoring by sharing stories, videos and photos using hashtag #ThankYourMentor. Personal stories provide points of connection and remind us of the power of relationships to break down otherness, find common ground and elevate shared humanity.

We're teaming up with MENTOR to encourage YOU to share your mentoring stories this month!  Click here to learn more about how you can upload a brief story and photo to celebrate the mentoring happening in your life!

As community leaders and as servant leaders, we are heartbroken by the recent tragedies and know that a genuine and ongoing commitment to real change is necessary to confront and combat racism.  We stand in solidarity with our peers, our neighbors, our colleagues and our friends with an even stronger resolve to be present, to listen, to learn and to act.  If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our 25 years of serving the community, it’s this: 

We are stronger together

We are committed to actively fighting racism and to using our voices for better.  We will continue to bring strength and hope; to foster meaningful conversations around change; to deliver services that are inclusive and will support all.  We encourage you to join us and find ways to improve race relations in our community and beyond.  Let’s all work toward better – better connection, better allyship, better love for one another.  Let’s work together to make this world a better place for our kids.  Now is the time and they’re depending on us.
