Bleckley County organizations celebrate National Mentoring Month

January is National Mentoring Month.  Thursday, Communities in Schools of Cochran and Bleckley County and Family Connection Community Partnership, Inc. sent out a release thanking volunteers who participated in their mentoring program at Bleckley County Middle School.

CIS/FC believes "The key to a quality mentoring relationship is having a caring adult consistently show up for a young person."  Mentors have provided 134 volunteer hours this school year.   They consider good matching a key to success, matching mentor/mentee interests and personality.  CIS/FC provides a free training session and also does a national background check.

Anyone interested in becoming a mentor can downlod a form from the Communities in Schools website or contact Gretchen Wilson-Tuck, 478-934-7270 (Extension 8002) for more information.
