January is National Mentoring Month.  Catholic Charities Atlanta Refugee Services includes an award-winning Mentoring Program.  Every day, mentors and mentoring practitioners show up for young people as agents of opportunity and catalysts for change.

This past week CCA Employees Neidegar Martinez, Refugee Youth Mentoring Support Specialist and Nasra Yonis, Manager of Youth Services attended the 2024 National Mentoring Summit in Washington DC.

Convened annually by MENTOR during National Mentoring Month, the National Mentoring Summit is an opportunity for mentoring practitioners, researchers, philanthropic investors, youth leaders, government and civic leaders, and Affiliates from across the country to unite under the shared goal of driving positive change for young people. Attendees have the opportunity to learn from one another, form new connections, and explore best practices for strengthening and expanding the youth mentoring movement.

Neidegar and Nasra met with GA Senator Jon Ossoff and had conversations about mentoring.
