Posted: Updated:

Guam - Governor Felix Camacho signed a proclamation earlier today declaring the month of February as Mentoring Awareness Month.  The Governor said he hopes to provide and expand current mentoring opportunities and increase awareness about the mutually beneficial outcome that mentorship relationships can bring to both parties.  

Studies have shown that young people  who  have  an adult  mentor  are far  less  likely  to  engage  in  high-risk  behaviors than those without one.

The Governor said "I encourage all members of our community to recognize the importance of mentoring,  to look  for  opportunities to serve as  mentor and to celebrate this month with appropriate activities and programs."

By declaring February Mentoring Awareness Month  the Governor said he hopes the public will be more aware  of the need for individuals to volunteer their time as  mentors and acknowledge current mentors like those who volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters  and other mentoring agencies on Guam.
