The Corporation for National & Community Service has an excellent service opportunity for Tribal Leaders! The Tribal Leader Recognition Day for National Service, otherwise known as Mayor and County Recognition Day, is a day to bring attention to the positive impact mayors, county officials and Tribal leaders have on their communities. Simply put, it is a way to say “thank you” to those who serve. Last year, over 178 million Americans participated in this event to show support for national service groups and to inspire more citizens to take part in national and community service. In previous years, communities have hosted luncheons to recognize those who serve and organized clean-ups of local trails and parks to continue serving their communities. This year we’re hoping to motivate even more people to participate in this Day of Service! Leaders can register for the 2017 Recognition Day here!
Please join us and participate in the 5th Annual Tribal Leader Recognition Day for National Service on Tuesday, April 4, 2017!
Webinar Recording and Resource
As part of the Collaborative Mentoring Webinar Series funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention through the National Mentoring Resource Center, training webinars are held monthly which aim to guide collaborative mentoring practices that can be utilized among youth serving organizations who understand the mentoring in real life means staying up to date with current trends.
The Mentoring in Real Life webinar training, previously recorded, covered National Mentoring Month tools and activation of those tools. This included best practices with social media in order to drive recruitments, as well as building successful media relationships. Campaign tools from National Mentoring Month are for year round recruitment, visibility, and creation of innovative practices. Social media can also be a powerful tool for engagement of the community and increasing visibility within a community. To build a successful media relationship is to increase recognition and distribution of the importance of mentoring.
