January is National Mentoring Month! As an annual effort, Pittsburgh Public Schools (@PPSNews) will be hosting an exclusive Twitter party to celebrate mentoring programs across the city. On Wednesday, January 28, 2015 from 4-5PM, Allies for Children (allies4children), YouthPlaces (@YouthPlaces), and the Mentoring Partnership of Southwestern PA (@MPSWPA) are partnering with the District to make this the BIGGEST Twitter party ever! Using hashtags #PPSMentorsMatter and #WeArePPS, tweets will include information regarding mentoring initiatives, mentor shout outs, fun facts, and successful mentoring stories.
Also, on Wednesday, We Promise, one of the District’s mentoring programs, is hosting their second summit at Duquesne University. Entitled “Key Tools for your Journey Ahead”, the Summit will provide our scholars the opportunity to collaborate with other young men in their grade level, from around the district in structured development workshops designed to enhance soft and hard skills essential for the various spaces of life. In connection with the Summit, the Twitter Party will take place after the event to keep the conversation about the importance of mentoring.
The goal for this Twitter party is to promote positive awareness around mentoring in Pittsburgh. Our last Twitter party reached almost 4 million people. As a result, this Twitter party is an opportunity for your organization to be heard on a larger platform.
To all of you new Twitter ‘peeps’, I have attached a Twitter guide with helpful tips on how to successfully be a part of the party. Also, attached is the official invite. Please feel free to share this email with others and post the invite on your social media pages.
