CU One-to-One Mentoring set to mark 20 years

CU One-to-One Mentoring will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2014, with a special celebration planned for November. In particular, the group is hoping to hear from current and former mentors and mentees, with hopes to highlight their stories as that celebration approaches.

Anyone wishing to share their story can do so at the group's Facebook page at facebook.com/cumentoring. Those not on Facebook can contact Lauren Smith in the Champaign school district at 217-351-3722 or smithla@champaignschools.org, or Barbara Linder at 217-337-0853 or blinder@usd116.org.

"The long-term effects of mentoring are hard to measure," Smith said. "It's very important to hear the stories of what it has meant to mentors and mentees."

The anniversary celebration is set for Nov. 13, 2014, at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center in Urbana.
