Message from Director:
January is National Mentoring Month...what better time to kick off DSABC's inaugural issue of our new quarterly newsletter! I hope you find this publication an enjoyable medium to get updates about DSABC, find inspiration from mentor and mentee stories, and find practical, useful tips for successful mentoring and recruitment. To that end, DSABC invites mentors, business partners, school staff and students to submit their experiences and successes for publication in future editions of this newsletter.
DSABC appreciates the commitment of 270 mentors and their employers who support our school-based mentoring program everyday, but with January being National Mentoring Month, I personally want to extend a very special THANK YOU to everyone who makes our program a success. Our mentors, business liaisons + corporate leaders, Danbury Public Schools, especially school liaisons, and DSABC Board of Directors....together we are able to sustain the 24 years of success with the school-based mentoring program. To share one of my favorite quotes from Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizen can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
Thank you for your interest in DSABC....Mentoring Making a Difference!
Mary Arconti Gregory, DSABC Director
