Donna's Ditties: September 2017
Thanks to all who joined us last night, September 27th, for our Mentor School Year Kickoff. We had such a great time hearing about your mentees and listening to you brainstorm together about ways to grow in your mentoring relationship. Thank you James Brown & Nampa Civic Center for making us feel so welcome! Thank you to all who helped put the event together and to those who donated raffle items. We made nearly $1,000 for our kid scholarships!

Do you want a mentor chum to reach out to for support and encouragement throughout the school year? Let us know and we will find another mentor for you to bounce ideas off.
We are also planning to experiment on a trial group of online, live gatherings. This will allow you to ask questions and share comments with us and other mentor/community members...learning and sharing...supporting and encouraging. If you would like to be a part, again, let us know.
