Bright County Mentors believes that a quality mentorship program is more than just one on one. That’s why each month we have several scheduled events that both mentors and mentees can participate in. In addition to our monthly events we have several other special events throughout the year. Take a look at some of the fun things we have to offer.
Weekly and Monthly Events
Game Night – Join us as we come together to play board games, eat snacks, and have fun catching up every week. Game night is a weekly event that is held on Tuesdays from 6-8pm.
Golf for Kids – Fore! Mentors and mentees can play through a round of golf once a month free of charge at the Meadow Valley Golf Club. Just make sure you sign up two weeks in advance if you would like to attend. But don’t worry if you miss out this time, we play every month all year round!
Nature Events – When we first started these events we had no idea how popular they would become! Every month the mentors of Bright County Mentors put together a nature themed event that all mentors and mentees who wish to participate can enjoy together. Past events have included hikes, nature exploration trails, camping activities, and visits to science exams.
BINGO – Originally done as part of our weekly game nights, BINGO was so popular we decided to give it a night of its own. Once a month, in addition to our regularly scheduled game night, we also provide BINGO night. Mentors and mentees are all welcome to attend, and can even bring their families!
Mentor Appreciation Night – At Bright County Mentors we know how important our mentors are to our continued success. That is why once a year we celebrate all of our mentors by providing a night of fun complete with food, music, games, and an awards ceremony celebrating the best of the best.
“Thank You” BBQ – With the end of school year and the beginning of summer vacation comes the Bright County Mentors annual BBQ for mentors, mentees, and the families of both. Enjoy summertime favorites like chicken, sausage, hot dogs, and hamburgers cooked on the grill, along with all of your favorite summertime side dishes.
