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.

Go to www.mentorprize.org for more information or fill out a MentorPrize application.  Are you ready to make a difference?
