National Mentoring Month
2021 JAN 25 | Written by Frank Merrick, Director FIRST Robotics Competition
FIRST and FIRST Robotics Competition are celebrating National Mentoring Month!
This week, celebrate with us by posting on social media using #MentoringMonth and #CHAMPIONTHEGAME! Students, share a photo or video on social media thanking your Mentors for all they do. And Mentors, we’d love to see what mentoring means to you or how a mentor had a positive impact on your own life. Then, tune in to the second installment of our Beyond the BotsSM series on Friday January 29, #ThankYourMentor Day, at noon EST on FIRSTtv . Your team or story may be featured! On this special Mentor Appreciation episode, we’ll also be selecting five winners of the Mentoring Month raffle, so spread the word and have all the FIRST mentors on your team get their entries in now. Raffle closes at midnight EST on Wednesday, January 27.
We also have some cool digital swag for our mentors:
- Be sure to grab a digital version of the 2020-2021 FIRST Coach Mentor pin here.
- Pick up your social headers and more here to show the world you are a FIRST mentor.
- And don’t forget to download your FIRST Coach Mentor Certificate of Appreciation from your FIRST Dashboard. (To access the certificate, click on your name in the upper right corner of the dashboard and select “Mentor/Coach Certificate” from the drop-down menu.)
Thanks, FRC mentors, for all that you do. You power us forward!
