In America, Thank Your Mentor Day is Thursday, Jan. 21, and is an initiative of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. To celebrate this day, many people will reach out to their mentors and thank them for the encouragement, guidance, and wisdom they’ve given. It’s a day for mentees to recognize and give thanks for the positive impact their mentors have left on their lives.
Do you have a mentor? Consider thanking them for all they’ve done to help you grow in your personal or professional career by:
- Sending a thank-you note or email
- Expressing your gratitude on social media
- Sending your mentor flowers or other gifts
- Taking your mentor to lunch
You can also write a tribute to your mentor on the Who Mentored You? Facebook page. If you write about your mentor, consider sending them a link so they can see the impact they’ve left on your life.
If you want to send a thank-you card, you can download one by clicking here.
And remember, passing on what your mentor has helped you learn may be one of the best ways to say thanks. You can reach out to a young person in your community and make a positive impact on their life just as your mentor has done for you.
