Story of Mentoring

Posted by Zach Maurin on January 13, 2010

Julie Sobin mentors young mother every week

A great friend of mine was just featured on her local news station in Maryland for her volunteer work mentoring a young mother raising two children.

It’s a great piece and shows how important it is to have experienced parents supporting  new ones — advice, positive encouragement, etc.

Check out the short video to hear the inspiring Julie Sobin talk about her experience.

January is National Mentoring Month and a good time to follow through on that New Year’s resolution to volunteer more often and help those that are really struggling in this economy.
