Cincinnati Youth Collaborative (CYC) is proud to celebrate National Mentoring Month this January, and to share that we currently have 991 mentors championing youth. Our annual Thank Your Mentor Day Celebration will take place on January 18th from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Great American Ball Park. It will be a wonderful evening recognizing the unique gift that mentors share with youth: their time, their support, and most importantly, their love. We have an amazing lineup of guest speakers: Cincinnati Police Chief, Eliot Isaac, and CYC’s very own Mentoring Manager, Antione Spriggs. Plus, CYC Mentor and WCPO Meteorologist, Sherry Hughes, returns as our master of ceremonies!

This year’s Thank Your Mentor Day Celebration will recognize long-time mentors, honor the 2018 Outstanding Mentor Award, the 2018 CYC Ambassador Award, and those receiving the 2018 CYC Outstanding Group Mentor Award.

This year’s Outstanding Mentor Nominees are Tamara Casey, Patricia Jones, James Sowar, Matt Stewart, Tesheia Thomas, Rob Thornton, Valsa Vettikkal, and Michael Wright.

Dr. Charles Cavallo will receive the 2018 CYC Ambassador Award. Dr. Cavallo has been instrumental in furthering CYC’s mission through his UC Med Mentors leadership. The CYC UC Med Mentors program serves as a cultural exchange for medical students, and provides opportunities for them to gain insight into the lives of children growing up in adverse conditions. The mentoring relationship exposes the mentees to new and different experiences, and provides positive reinforcement and encouragement. Serving as a Med Mentor, medical students benefit from growing into more well-rounded and compassionate physicians.

Truepoint Wealth Counsel will also be recognized as the 2018 Outstanding Group Mentor.
