Whether you are for or against new years resolutions, the transition to the new year is a natural time for reflection, assessment, and goal setting. Why not stop what you are doing and decide what your focus will be during 2024? Focusing on one word is a way to ensure clarity and laser-like focus. Many have found this to be a catalyst for real change. If you don't know where to start, check out the steps below.

1. Determine the kind of person you want to become
2. Identify the characteristics of that person you envision
3. Pick one word from that list of characteristics
4. Commit to focusing on that one characteristic/word for the year
5. Give it time and stick to it.

Today we celebrate the work of mentorship that is being done at the national level. We are proud to stand with our national organization and to implement our proven mentoring model. The 100 is committed to mentoring and supporting individuals as they pursue goals throughout their lifetime.

* Members are actively mentoring elementary, middle school and high school youth
* Through the Collegiate 100, students are mentored and serve as mentors during their post- secondary education years.
* Through their individual businesses and their employers, members provide internship opportunities to collegiate students.
* Upon entering the workforce, mentees continue to receive ongoing guidance and support from 100 members.
In addition to mentoring youth, chapters provide educational workshops that encompass education, health and economic development while developing civic-minded leaders who in turn give back to society.

January is National Mentoring Month. This is a campaign that was launched in 2002 by MENTOR. It aims to unify and expand the mentoring movement, celebrate the power of relationships, and raise awareness around the importance of youth mentoring in the United States. Their motto is "Passions to awaken. Dreams to achieve. An endless sense of possibility every new year." Just think of how you can make an impact this month by acting as a mentor. You don't have to look too far. Share your gifts with your relatives, neighbors, and friends.

'Tis the season of giving and gratitude. There are 5 more days left in 2023. Here is one more reason to join us in our Annual Appeal as we move closer to our goal of $30K. Fieldtrips and outings are great opportunities for young people. This is because they engage in quality interactions with peers and with adults. They also are exposed to new places and unique careers/entrepreneurial ventures. These things help to broaden their perspectives and they increase the likelihood that they will begin to dream big.

We trust that your Christmas was memorable one filled with laughter and love. This holiday train just keeps on moving. We are taking things up a notch and acknowledging that today is the first day of The 2023 Kwanzaa Celebration.

Kwanzaa is an annual celebration of African-American culture from December 26 to January 1, culminating in a communal feast called Karamu, usually on the sixth day. It was created by activist Maulana Karenga, and is based on African harvest festival traditions from various parts of West and Southeast Africa. This is an opportunity to continue connecting with family, friends and the members of our community. Celebrate good times.

Please consider contributing financially as we continue on the road to our $30K goal. Today we are shouting out our organization's motto, "What they see is what they will be."
