    KINSHIP IS CELEBRATING BECAUSE JANUARY IS NATIONAL MENTORING MONTH!!!  
    Take a minute to think about the people who mentored you along the way.  Maybe it was a teacher, neighbor, extended family member, pastor or even a Kinship mentor.  What meant the most about that relationship; a listening ear, encouragement, time, or learning new things together, opening doors of opportunity?  Mentoring isn't complicated. It is simply about sharing everyday adventures and just being there for a young person.
    Every day, but especially in January, We CELEBRATE mentoring, we CELEBRATE our mentors, We CELEBRATE our matches!
    If YOU have thought about mentoring through Kinship, today is a great day to take the next step. Visit our website (kinshipofmc.org) to learn more about mentoring through Kinship.  Better yet, give us a call at (320) 632-8806.
