Mentoring Month

Have you heard?

January is National Mentoring Month!

Being a mentor, having a mentor –– mentorship is a powerful, positive relationship for everyone, and we're celebrating that this month!

National Mentoring Month is all about driving systemic change to make mentoring an integral component of youth and workforce development efforts.

How Can Small Businesses Join In?

Finding the time to mentor can be a challenge, but business owners and employees alike can benefit with boosted employee morale, increased satisfaction and a meaningful way to give back to the community.

The National Mentoring Month website can quickly match you with local organizations who champion youth mentorship programs – simply enter your zip code and get connected!

Looking for a Small Business Mentor?

Interested in working with a mentor? Great idea! Turns out that 70% of small businesses that receive mentoring survive more than five years – DOUBLE the survival rate of non-mentored businesses (according to a 2014 survey by The UPS Store).

SBA has resources to connect you with a mentor –– visit us online to find yours along with insights to make the most of your experience.
