Get ready Mentees- It is time!

One of the best ways to kick off the New Year, besides goal-setting, is to practice thankfulness for the positives in your life.

What better way to put that into action than by giving thanks to the mentors who have influenced personal and professional growth? January is National Mentoring Month and, more specifically, January 21st is Thank Your Mentor Day.

Mentoring has been proven to have positive effects, especially on young people. According to, young adults who were at-risk for falling off track but had a mentor are:

55% more likely to enroll in college
78% more likely to volunteer regularly
90% are interested in becoming a mentor
130% more likely to hold leadership positions.

Imagine for a moment where you would be without your mentor. Now, thank them.

Are you struggling with what to say or how to say it?


Mentor Thank You Note Brainstorming Questions:

  • How did you and your mentor spend your time?
  • What is your favorite quality about your mentor?
  • What are the top three ways your mentor has made an impact on your life?
  • Did your mentor open up new doors for you? If so, how?
  • How does your mentor inspire you to continue to grow?
  • What do you admire about your mentor?
  • Where would you be without your mentor?



All Mentors of AICR are looking forward to your note.
