January is National Mentoring Month

After reading Tony Gerlicz’s and Todd Lopez’s piece (“It takes a city for youth to thrive,” The Dais, Jan. 7), I was reminded of how valuable the gift of time is to our youth. January is National Mentoring Month. There are many wonderful mentors and tutors who deserve to be recognized and celebrated for their contribution to our city’s youth week in and week out.
It is worth mentioning that there is an urgent need for more mentors and tutors in Santa Fe. Our children need us now more than ever. What a dream come true were we to have enough adults willing to give their support, knowledge and attention to the children and young adults who need it most.
