January is Mentor Month
On January 26, 2009 at 9:30 AM, the County Judge and El Paso County Commissioners resolved to support a collaborative of agencies in their initiative to expand mentoring in the community. The Border Children’s Mental Health Collaborative, Big Brothers Big Sisters of El Paso, El Paso Mental Health and Mental Retardation, The County of El Paso’s Juvenile Probation Department, and the Paso del Norte Children’s Development Center will charge forward ready to assist hundreds of children who are at risk by giving them a friendly hand to guide them through trying times.
With as little as four hours a month, a caring person over the age of eighteen can help a child develop into a happy, healthy adult that can one day give back to the community that they grew up in. By becoming a mentor, a community member will not only give hope to a child who may be thinking about dropping out of school and struggling with the responsibilities of growing up, but one will feel the reward of becoming a part of a strong community initiative.
Call now to learn about the free events, activities, and training that you can participate in to help a child between the ages of six to seventeen, or email in the Volunteer Inquiry Form to the contact information below.
