January is National Mentoring Month: Join the GeoMentors Program
President Obama issued a proclamation last month designating January as “National Mentoring Month” in support of the Nation’s young people and to “honor those who give of themselves to uplift our next generation.” In the proclamation, the President states, “Working together, we can provide every child with the tools, guidance, and confidence they need to flourish and succeed.” Read the complete Presidential Proclamation — National Mentoring Month.
In observance of National Mentoring Month, the AAG welcomes everyone from the broad GIS community, across all disciplines and sectors, to consider volunteering with the AAG-Esri ConnectED GeoMentors Program to enhance GIS and geographic learning in US K-12 schools through the introduction of ArcGIS Online into classrooms across the country. Join our nationwide network of GeoMentors to assist schools and teachers with their educational goals using GIS. Previous experience with ArcGIS Online is not required; we have many training resources available to help you be a great asset to the K-12 educational community. Learn more at www.geomentors.net.
