Happy New Year!
Pioneer Human Services wishes all of you a very Healthy and Happy 2015.
January is National Mentoring Month. It focuses national attention on the need for mentors, as well as how each of us—individuals, businesses, government agencies, schools, faith communities and nonprofits—can work together to increase the number of mentors who empower individuals to make better life choices. The month focuses on creating positive outcomes for young people across the nation.
Pioneer Human Services took National Mentoring Month a step further by creating a Mentoring Program for adults struggling to overcome the challenges of criminal histories and substance abuse issues. We designed a mentoring program to help guide, support and inspire students, or graduates, of our Roadmap to Success job readiness training program. Students in the program have been incarcerated and are in the process of reintegrating back into their communities.
