Friends Detroit Celebrates Mentor Month with a STEMendouse Day!

January is National Mentor Month. It is an annual campaign dedicated to raising awareness about the POWER and IMPACT of mentoring. It's a time to recognize and honor the contributions of mentors while encouraging individuals to become mentors themselves.

At Friends Detroit, this is an important month. As we leave the holiday celebrations behind, start the new school semester, and deal with the winter cold, we find that our youth need more inspiration and connection. To honor them and our mission, we hold an annual Mentor Day. It is a day of STEM focused activities and fun.

This year, our youth got to choose their own scientific adventure with their mentors! Some chose to make perfume, some made slime, and some did color mixing. In the dynamic landscape of STEM, mentorship bridges the gap between theory and practice. We are so happy that our youth got to try, fail, succeed and most importantly, learn!
