National Mentoring Month (NMM) is the largest-scale mentoring campaign nationwide that highlights the success and impact mentor's have on our community's youth. The campaign was launched four years ago by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership. This year will reflect on the incredible growth of the mentoring movement, recognize the real life mentoring relationships that form and thrive each day, and offer opportunities to thank the mentors who inspired us.
