International Mentoring Day on January 17, 2016 will celebrate the role of mentor, by asking the world to share their ideas around mentorship and create space for an international conversation.
The goals of this special day are to highlight the international power of mentorship in connection with National Mentoring Month to foster a global understanding, and build global mentoring momentum, network and movement. The international power of mentoring will be recognized and celebrated throughout the month of January, and showcased on Muhammad Ali’s 74th birthday (January 17). This initiative will use as inspiration, Muhammad’s six core principles:
The Six Core Principles of Muhammad Ali
•Confidence – Belief in oneself, one’s abilities, and one’s future
•Conviction – A firm belief that gives one the courage to stand behind that belief, despite pressure to do otherwise
•Dedication – The act of devoting all of one’s energy, effort, and abilities to a certain task
•Giving – To present voluntarily without expecting something in return
•Respect – Esteem for, or a sense of the worth or excellence of, oneself and others
•Spirituality – A sense of awe, reverence, and inner peace inspired by a connection to all of creation and/or that which is greater than oneself
