January 1 is not only the start of the New Year, but it’s also the start of National Mentoring Month, when organizations around the country honor mentors and bring awareness to mentoring. Here are some important dates we would like to share in honor of this celebratory month:
- January 4, 2018 – I Am a Mentor Day
A day for volunteer mentors to celebrate their role and reflect on the ways mentees have enhanced their world.
- January 15, 2018 – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
A day to share in the inspirational words of MLK, Jr. and elevate the spirit of service through volunteerism.
- January 25, 2018 – #ThankYourMentor Day
A day for all who have real life mentoring experiences to thank those who helped them on their path to adulthood and beyond. Make sure to tag Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida and hashtag #BBBSNEFL.

To wrap up National Mentoring Month, BBBSNEFL celebrated our mentors on February 1 at Intuition Ale Works! A BIG thanks goes to Trader Joe’s for donating the beautiful floral centerpieces and desserts. Mentors enjoyed mingling, raffles and scrumptious food. Every year we take the time to honor our mentors for their time and dedication. We couldn’t do it without our BIGS! Check out some photos from our eventful night
