The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

National Mentoring Month underway

 

January 19, 2023



January is National Mentoring Month, and the Wahkiakum Community Network (WCN) is revitalizing their local mentoring program. They will host an informational meeting for potential mentors on Tuesday, January 24, at 6 p.m., at the Hope Center, 320 S. 3rd St., Cathlamet. They will enroll adult volunteers who have an interest in sharing skills, hobbies, interests or career fields with youth (K – 12) in the local community.

WCN’s mission is to help youth and families stay healthy and free from the harms of drugs, alcohol, tobacco and vaping. Building relationships and community connections are essential to this mission. Mentorship is an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life by providing connection, guidance and hope.

Mentors will be asked to commit to one year of service and spend at least four hours per month with their mentee(s). Training will be provided and monthly activities for mentors and mentees will be implemented. Mentors will be required to pass a background check.

Those interested in the program who cannot attend the meeting on January 24, are welcome to contact Terrie Howell (360-795-8630 Ext. 209) or Minette Smith (360-795-8630 Ext. 224), or email them at mentoring@co.wahkiakum.wa.us.
