National Mentoring Month: Celebrating the Power of Mentorship

We know the holidays just ended, but January is a BIG month for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee.

January is National Mentoring Month, and we have some great things happening for our supporters, our volunteers, and our families.

I Am a Mentor Day

January 7 is I Am a Mentor Day. We are asking our Bigs to share why they became a Big and why they continue to inspire our young people. Make sure to follow us on social media as we share our very own Bigs’ inspiring stories.

The BIG Info Session

Join us on January 13 at noon for The BIG Info Session. Hosted by Fox 17 News Anchor and Report, and Big Sister Erika Glover, this one-hour Zoom webinar learn more about our mentoring programs and why you already have what it takes to become a mentor. Click here to register.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

On January 18, please stand with us as we honor Dr. King through volunteerism. Volunteering to become a mentor to youth amplifies the voices of our communities’ future leaders. 

Go BIG Tennessee

Did you know the state of Tennessee is home to five different Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies? We are joining forces from Memphis to Clarksville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and right here in Nashville to bring you a statewide info session! Join us on January 21 at noon to hear more about becoming a Big and ask volunteers from across the state how they mentor. Register here.

Thank Your Mentor Day

January 29 is Thank Your Mentor Day. All week we will be sharing how mentoring has impacted the lives of our youth and their families. Look for photos, videos, and testimonials on social media and our website.

National Mentoring Month is all about supporting our young people and letting them know there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges and makes them feel like they matter. We hope you join us in celebrating the power of mentorship.
