ATTENDANCE AWARENESS MONTH
September is Attendance Awareness Month with the third week in the month (September 15-21, 2014) designated as The Mentoring Effect & Attendance Week.
The Attendance Awareness Month toolkit for Mentoring Partnerships includes key messaging, sample social media content, and tips on how to get involved not only during “Mentoring Effect Week”, but the entire month of September. As we all know, mentoring has a BIG impact on academic achievement for students and supports healthy communities. We encourage you to download the toolkit from the MENTOR website and participate with us in supporting the concept of school every day. And don’t forget to pin your organization to the Attendance Awareness Action MAP to showcase your participation along with campaign supporters across the nation. Together, we can help increase interest and engagement in school for America’s youth.
