Quarter 4 of the Coaches Challenge to Kick-Off November 1st!
During the month of November, each of our chapters will be focusing on recognition and support of their mentors. We are so grateful to have such a dynamic Team to carry out the mission of our organization! For more information on the 4th quarter click here.
Watch one of our Iowa TeamMates Mentors discuss the importance of mentoring.
The National Mentoring Partnership has identified 15 million youth in need of a mentor. Thousands of these youth live in Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska. In an effort to help close the gap, University of Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz, Iowa State Coach Paul Rhoads, University of Northern Iowa Coach Mark Farley, University of Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini, Kansas State Coach Bill Snyder, and Kansas University Coach Charlie Weis have issued a friendly challenge to see which state can recruit the most new mentors.
The Coaches Challenge launched on August 1, 2012. The winning team will be announced December 1st, 2012.
