MentorPrize seeks Mentors to serve the community
MentorPrize recruits mentors for various non-profit organizations in the Washington region that serve a broad range of constituencies — from at risk-youth to immigrants struggling to gain a foothold in the job market. It is aggressively working to identify quality mentors for its partners, which is why it is reaching out to the Bender JCC community.
Research confirms that mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on mentees in a variety of personal, academic and professionals situations. The benefits extend to the mentors as well — improving their morale, communication skills and emotional well-being. But finding a meaningful mentoring opportunity can be daunting given the region’s dizzying array of programs. MentorPrize has taken the time to assess dozens of these programs. It is well-positioned to match you with a program that suits your interests and takes into account your time constraints and preferred location.
Disability Partnerships is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Rockville, Maryland that seeks to improve the quality of life for persons living with physical disabilities. They created a survey on the health and wellness needs of the physically disabled in our area. Click here to take the survey.
