Mentoring Partners & Senior Friends partner for a special Valentine’s Day

On Valentine’s Day, the New York Junior League’s Mentoring Partners and Senior Friends committees collaborated to celebrate by taking part in “Random Acts of Kindness Day.” As part of the lesson, the Mentoring Partners mentors led a one-on-one discussion with their mentees to show them how performing random acts of kindness can bring joy to others, as well as to themselves.

After that, mentors and mentees created Valentine’s Day cards for the residents of Jewish Home Lifecare, who the NYJL’s Senior Friends committee serves. The cards put a smile on the faces of the seniors and were a fun way for mentees to learn the art of doing random acts of kindness in the community. Following the card-marking activity, volunteers Courtney Bale and Julia Bosson led a thought-provoking discussion around how the mentees could implement random acts of kindness into their daily routines.

NYJL’s Mentoring Partners committee serves mentees at the RFK Apartments near Union Square. The mentees are young women ranging in age from 14 to 21. The committee works with Mentoring USA, a New York City based non-profit organization, which forges powerful connections for young people through the advocacy and involvement of mentors.

Based on the success of this event, both committees look forward to partnering again in the future!
