According to our calendar here at FIRST® Headquarters in Manchester, NH, USA, January is National Mentoring Month here in the United States. But we definitely think it should be a global phenomenon.

Why? Because  FIRST® LEGO® League could not exist without our coaches. You are a necessary ingredient. You make a difference just by showing up, but trust us when we say you do a whole lot more.

We asked our Facebook followers to share what their mentors and coaches have taught them.

January is National Mentoring Month. What is something your Mentor or Coach has taught you?

Please feel free to add your own thoughts to the mix!

As a way to say thank you for all you do, this one’s going out to all our coaches and mentors everywhere. Thanks for all you do.
