There’s still time for small businesses to participate in National Mentoring Month.  The SBA reminds us of the importance of mentoring for young people.  Mentored youth are: 

  • 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor.
  • 81% more likely to report participating regularly in sports or extracurricular activities.
  • More than twice as likely to say they held a leadership position in a club or sports team.
  • 78% more likely to volunteer regularly in their communities.

Mentoring can boost employee morale, increase satisfaction and provide a
meaningful way for your business to give back to the community.  To learn more, go here.
