Be big.

In light of National Mentorship Month, I thought I'd share some resources for you all! 
I'm not sure if you had a mentor growing up or you ever thought about becoming one yourself, but can I encourage you to think about it?
Being an extra {or in some cases, the only} support to a youth can result in some amazing results. Kiddos with a mentor in their life are proved to have higher education goals, less engagement in risky behavior, and a higher self-confidence. 
Besides being a mentor yourself, there are lots of ways you can donate time & money to support organizations that are already doing mentorship really well.

If you live in the Indy area, here's some useful info for you. And if you live anywhere is a great resource!

I didn't have a mentor growing up, but love hearing the stories of people who did and how their mentor impacted them. I'm even praying for a way to get involved in mentorship now, as an adult. Did you have a mentor? I'd LOVE to hear about it!! :)
