In honor of National Mentoring Month, the Human Services Council celebrated the mentors and mentees of the Norwalk Mentor Program with a special evening at Stepping Stones Museum on Thursday, January 29, 2015. The first school-based mentoring program in the country, the Norwalk Mentor Program currently has 220 students matched with a mentor in the Norwalk Public Schools.

The evening was a time for our mentors to get together outside of the school setting with their mentee and gave them an opportunity to meet their mentee’s family. In addition to the museum exhibits and activities, those who attended enjoyed a light dinner provided by Mike’s Deli, had their photos taken by Capitol Photo Booths and listened to live music provided by SoNo Entertainment, including an original song written just for the Norwalk Mentor Program. Several mentees of the program performed as well.

Thank you to our lead sponsor of the event, FactSet Research Systems, as well as to our other sponsors EC Scott Group, Fairfield County Bank, GE Captial Corporation, Iridian Asset Management, Kohl’s Cares, PDC International, Sequel International, Spinnaker Real Estate, Stew Leonard’s and The Awesome Foundation.
