Coach Urban Meyer Joins the Coaches' Mentoring Challenge!
The Coaches' Mentoring Challenge started as a friendly competition but has grown into a full-blown Big 10 contest, second only to football, and after the third quarter of competition, 8,782 mentors had been recruited! It's all about recruiting more mentors for kids in our communities, and it's another chance for Ohio to show the rest of the Big 10 how it is done! The campaign is a partnership between participating universities and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership. The goal is 15,000 new mentors signed up during the Challenge, which ends on November 30. Click here to volunteer!

Mentoring Program Support
We will help you find a mentoring opportunity that fits your skills, and refer you to one of our partner mentoring organizations. Plus, we provide training to ensure you make the greatest impact on your mentee!
If you are a non-profit organization, school, faith-based organization or corporation, we can give you the support you need for your mentoring program. We will also provide training for your mentors.

Our 14th annual FunDay turned out to be lots of FUN...for about 400 mentors and mentees who came for a day of enrichment and bonding. Held in OSU's Recreation and Physical Activity Center, the day included arts and crafts, karaoke, activities, and, of course, Brutus! Want to see more pictures? For more photos of the fun, click here!
The 14th annual Mentoring Celebration was a big success on January 20 at the Ohio Statehouse! It was All About the Kids and their inspirational stories.
