Partners in Prevention Recognizes January as National Mentoring Month


January marks the 17th Annual National Mentoring Month. This year’s theme is “In Real Life.” Partners in Prevention is participating in this campaign aimed at expanding quality mentoring opportunities to connect more of our community’s young people with caring adults by hosting a New Mentor Training on Tuesday, January 15th  from 5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. An additional opportunity will also be offered Wednesday, January 30th from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Please register by calling, 903-237-1019.

Partners in Prevention’s Forever Friends and Co-Pilots Mentoring Programs provided 239 youth with caring, trained adult mentors during 2018. Mentors can choose to mentor a young person in Longview, Pine Tree, Spring Hill, Hallsville or Kilgore Independent School Districts. The mission of Partners in Prevention Mentoring Program is to inspire and encourage young men and women for Leadership through positive relationships. The Partners in Prevention Mentoring Program has provided quality mentoring for over 22 years.  

Research has shown that when matched through a quality mentoring program, mentors can play a powerful role in providing young people with the tools to make responsible decisions, stay focused and engaged in school, and reduce or avoid risky behavior like skipping school, drug use and other negative activities.
