Kitsap County Celebrates Mentoring Month

PORT ORCHARD, WA—Kitsap County will celebrate National Mentoring Month in January 2006 by hosting a multimedia event on Tuesday, January 10, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., at the Community Room in the Norm Dicks Government Center.

The event, organized by the Kitsap Youth Mentoring Consortium, will feature Commissioner Jan Angel and Retired Bremerton Police Chief Rob Forbes, who will talk about their own mentors and the importance of providing support and guidance to youth to promote their success in school and in life. One of the themes of the event is “Who mentored you? Thank them and pass it on!” Staff and mentors from nine different programs across the county will be on hand to answer questions, and resource information will also be available.
