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.
