Valentine’s Day Auctions Encourages Community Love for Your Club

Hosting a fundraising auction is a great way to increase traffic in your Club, boost funding, and get the entire community involved in your Club. Holidays in general are a great time to really encourage donations. Many Clubs have had great success hosting the same event year after year such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Alaska with the Have a Heart Auction. They have come to understand the value of building relationships with various community members and how having a yearly event encourages loyal participation throughout the community.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, Clubs are ready to make good use of the holiday through exciting fundraising events. On Club taking advantage is the Boys & Girls Club of the Tanana Valley. On Friday, February 13, 2015, the Club will hold its 23rd annual Have a Heart Auction at the Fairbanks Westmark Hotel in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Clubs nationwide host Have a Heart Auctions in order to make Valentine’s Day extra special for their Club
as well as their community. Members of the community purchase tickets for a small fee and make donations of auction items or even volunteer time to help with event preparations.


January is National Mentoring Month

January marks a very important month of recognition- National Mentoring Month! In 2002, the Harvard School of Public Health and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership came together to bring national attention to the importance of mentoring and the need for mentors in the lives of youth to promote positive outcomes.

For thirteen years, National Mentoring Month has received recognition from the U.S. president, members of Congress, advocates for mentoring, and organizations that use mentoring to improve the lives for youth and adults alike in their community. This year’s recognition of National Mentoring Month is no different but has been sweetened by a special grand debut. The U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, and MENTOR officially announced the launch of the National Mentoring Resource Center!

The National Mentoring Resource Center (NMRC) aims to provide mentoring tools, program and training materials, and information to support any youth mentoring practitioner across the country who wishes to improve the quality and effectiveness of mentoring.

Through the NMRC, Native Clubs will have access to a comprehensive and reliable source of information as well as a one-stop spot to apply for no-cost training and technical assistance to support them in better incorporating evidence-based practices.
