Created in 2002 by the Harvard School of Public Health and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, National Mentoring Month focuses national attention on the need for mentors, as well as how each of us—individuals, businesses, government agencies, schools, faith communities and nonprofits—can work together to increase the number of mentors to assure positive outcomes for our young people.

NMM celebrates mentoring and the positive effect it can have on young lives. Its goals are to:

    Raise awareness of mentoring in its various forms.

    Recruit individuals to mentor, especially in programs that have waiting lists of young people.

    Promote the rapid growth of mentoring by recruiting organizations to engage their constituents in mentoring.

The national partners work with the NMM campaign’s local partners, who are organizing special NMM events in their communities with numerous partners, including their local media. These events help interested adults learn how to turn their concern for young people into direct action by becoming mentors.
