In celebration of National Mentoring Month, 170 mentors and mentoring supporters gathered together for the 8th annual Thank Your Mentor Breakfast at the Hilton Burlington. The breakfast celebrated the efforts of the more than 800 volunteer mentors in Chittenden County and featured remarks by Senator Patrick Leahy, spokesperson Michael Schirling, Burlington Chief of Police, and DREAM mentor Molly Mulcahy with her mentee Noah.

“I wanted to tell you all that you make a real difference, whether you read books, shoot hoops, do homework, or just talk. I wanted to come here as one Vermonter and say thank you,”
-Senator Patrick Leahy.

 

 

The Thank Your Mentor Breakfast was a part of Mobius’ local celebration of National Mentoring Month 2012. Throughout the month of January, Mobius representatives and spokesperson Chief Schirling raised awareness of the local mentoring movement and recruited new volunteers for the hundreds of local children who want and would benefit from having a mentor.

-Michael Schirling, Burlington Police Chief.
