This August Members of Congress will return to their districts marking the perfect opportunity for mentoring advocates to engage officials on their home turf. This summer join MENTOR as we use Congress’ summer recess to engage and inform Members of Congress of the importance of mentoring in your home state. You can take action using some or all of the resources in the toolkit below.

1 in 3 young people in the U.S. will grow up without a mentor of any kind. Help us close this gap — be a #MentoringAdvocate! Raise your voice, share your knowledge, and affect positive change through engagement with Congress and other influencers in your communities.
The portfolio of issues tied to mentoring continues to grow on Capitol Hill. Learn more about specific bills and proposals for expanding quality mentoring opportunities for the country’s young people. You can view MENTOR’s Legislative Platform here.
