Share your stories during National Mentoring Month

During January you'll see national advertising featuring celebrities like Clint Eastwood, which are part of the National Mentoring Month Campaign.  You can read about the campaign in my Tutor/Mentor Blog

While the media are shining the spotlight on mentoring, I'd like to know who is blogging about mentoring. Who is telling stories of tutors/mentors connecting with inner city kids, like we do at the Cabrini Blog?

Or, who is talking about the challenges that keep good tutor/mentor programs from being available in all of the neighborhoods where such programs are needed? 

If you write a blog on these topics, please post the link on this web site, or introduce your blog to me and others, by adding a comment on the Tutor/Mentor Blog

If we aggregate these stories, we can draw volunteers and donors to volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in more places. We can also keep the focus on mentoring programs during the other eleven months of the year when the National Mentoring Month is not active.
