National Mentoring Month
January 2005

Torrance, CA -(January 12, 2005) On January 12th of this year, President George W. Bush proclaimed January as National Mentoring Month, honoring the role models that often profoundly change the lives of young people. Though mentoring has always had a strong focus in our country, from the old institution of apprenticeships up to the counselors and coaches of the 21st century, January is a month to recognize how much of an impact these mentors have on our lives.

At ACT1, we know how powerful an effect mentors can have in a young person's life. As a business professional whose career has been shaped by the influence of mentors, our founder and chairman, Janice Bryant Howroyd, has built the very same work ethic into her own organization.

In honoring the dedication of mentors, ACT1 strives to keep the humanity that is so often lacking in human resources, to maintain that essential human relationship to ensure that no one gets lost in the crowd, no matter how large the organization. Mentoring also figures heavily in ACT1's involvement with the community. Numerous ACT1 employees are involved in mentoring local students, as well as working with local shelters and other organizations to get all Americans back on their feet and in a self-sustaining position. Our chairman also contributes to scholarships each year, giving underprivileged students a chance at a higher education that they might not otherwise have gotten.

Though a relationship with a mentor lasts a lifetime, it is ACT1's privilege to honor the mentors that have influenced our own lives this month, as well as the children who inspire us to strive higher so that we might better influence their futures.
