Special Admission Pricing for Mentors/Mentees January 15-21

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (January 12, 2018) — The National Mentoring Partnership and the Muhammad Ali Center are proud to announce the Third Annual International Mentoring Day on January 17, 2018—the date which would have been the 76th birthday of boxing legend and global humanitarian Muhammad Ali.

January 15th – 21st, the Muhammad Ali Center invites mentors and mentees to visit the Center together and receive a discounted rate. Mentors will receive a $5 admissions rate and their mentee will be able to tour the Center for free. 

On a larger scale, the international and universal power of mentoring will be recognized and celebrated throughout the month of January, National Mentoring Month.

Leading up to January 17, individuals and organizations are encouraged to share, through social media, photos, video, messages and stories that reflect on the real life power of mentoring and in particular: (1) what mentoring means to you in real life; and (2) how you define and describe mentoring through your experience.  Mentors and mentees are encouraged to meet and visit together in real life and to share pictures and stories reflecting on the power of this mentoring relationship.

The dialogue will be captured online through #InternationalMentoringDay, #MentorIRL and #NationalMentoringMonth and on Twitter (@MentoringDay ) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MentoringDay/) and on this website:
