Dear Friend,

November is Thank Your Mentee Month!
We at MENTOR Rhode Island are always grateful for our mentors. But we can't forget the incredible impact that the young people that we serve have on us as mentors and adults! This month, thank a young person for what they do - for persevering through COVID, for overcoming challenges, for being a bright spot in someone's day. And once you have thanked that young person, put your gratitude into action by becoming a mentor or reaching out to someone who would be a great mentor and encouraging them to give of their time. Mentoring is a way to amplify your gratitude. Click on the button below - or forward this to someone you have in mind.
Native American Heritage Month
November is Native American Heritage Month! Learning about the rich and varied traditions and cultures of Indigenous communities is key to forming meaningful connections with Native youth. Rhode Island has incredible resources to learn about local tribes and the history of our Native peoples. Learn about strategies to connect with Native youth here.
