January is National Mentoring Month and on Saturday, January 23, 2016 there is a free mini-conference and mentor fair where you can learn more about how you can make a difference in our community by being someone who matters to a young person. At the conference, you’ll hear inspiring stories of mentors and mentees and how their relationship transformed them both. Then you’ll be able to speak directly with about a dozen different organizations that provide mentor support to kids of all ages and find the best fit for you.

Make a difference in your community and connect one-on-one with a child, teenager or young adult. We offer a wide variety of mentoring opportunities. What can be more rewarding than to have a positive impact on a young person? Find out more and come to South Bay Mentoring Coalition’s Mentoring Fair. You are the solution!
