Hilltop's Tandem Families is participating in January's National Mentoring Month activities. Thank Your Mentor Day is Jan. 26, and Tandem Families is encouraging its participating youth to thank their mentor families who have encouraged and guided them while having a lasting positive impact on their lives.
Tandem Families is a family-to-family mentoring program committed to establishing family mentoring for children facing challenging circumstances. The program recruits individual or family volunteers who mentor children and their families in Delta and Montrose counties.
Tandem Families is also recruiting new mentors. Staff is holding an open house on Thursday, Jan. 26, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Hilltop's office located at 540 S. 1st Street in Montrose. Staff encourages community members to consider making a difference in the life of a child by becoming a mentor. Tandem Families is always recruiting individuals and families willing to serve as examples for young people and to show them healthy social, behavioral, and emotional skills. For more information on becoming a Tandem Family volunteer contact Mary Kirby, child and family services clinical coordinator, at 240-1085.blog comments powered by Disqus
