Building on the NBA family’s partnership with MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, we will continue to highlight the power of mentoring and encourage Americans to become mentors using PSAs, grassroots events, ticket donations and online organizing. Through these efforts, the NBA family was able to surpass a five-year-recruitment goal of 25,000 new mentor signups in less than one year. In 2016, the NBA family doubled its commitment to 50,000.

You don’t have to have all the answers or all the time in the world to be someone’s hero!
