President Obama designates January as National Mentoring Month, Omaha has many activities planned

At the end of December, President Barack Obama issued a proclamation designating January 2011 as National Mentoring Month. 



He stated, "Across our Nation, mentors steer our youth through challenging ties sand support their journey into adulthood. During National Mentoring Month, we honor these important individuals who unlock the potential and nurture the talent of our country, and we encourage more Americans to reach out and mentor young people in their community." The entire text of the proclamation is found on the White House website. 

Mentoring organizations, mentors, school personnel, community and business leaders in Omaha, the Governor of Nebraska, and the Mayor of Omaha, are involved in a month of activities to celebrate National Mentoring Month in January.
