Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. Celebrates National Mentoring Month in January

December 30, 2013 – January is National Mentoring Month, and to celebrate the benefits of mentoring relationships, Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. will be holding a Mentoring Open House on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 from 12:30P.M. – 1:30P.M. at CFLR, Inc.’s Utica Office, 502 Court Street, Suite 401, Utica, New York 13502.
Adult mentors are needed for several programs, including CFLR, Inc.’s Compeer Program and Second Chance Program.

• CFLR, Inc.’s Compeer Program matches trained volunteers in one-to-one supportive friendships and mentoring relationships.
• CFLR, Inc.’s Second Chance Program assists women, who have recently been released from prison to gain employment, and is a federally funded grant program conducted in partnership with The Workforce Investment Board.
To be a mentor, you don’t need special skills, just an ability to listen and to offer friendship, guidance and encouragement to a young person or adult; and you’ll be amazed by how much you’ll get out of the experience.
Mentoring happens in a number of settings, including in our local schools, in person at a time that is convenient to both you and the mentee, as well as via phone, internet and by mail. Surely one of these methods must be right for you!

To R.S.V.P. for CFLR, Inc.’s Mentoring Open House on Wednesday, January 22 from 12:30P.M. – 1:30P.M. contact Sarah Rivera, Program Assistant for CFLR, Inc., at (315) 733 – 1709 or
