Thursday is Thank Your Mentor Day. It is a day where many people will express their appreciation to those who took the time to encourage and guide them.
Thank Your Mentor Day promotes four ways to honor your mentor:
- Contact your mentor directly to express your appreciation
- “Pass it on” by becoming a mentor to a young person in your community
- Make a financial contribution to a local mentoring program
- Write a tribute to your mentor for posting on the campaign’s Web site.
Take a few minutes and make a list of mentors who have been influential in your life. Show your appreciation in one or more of the ways listed above. You will be glad you did (and so will your mentors).
