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.

The dialogue will be captured online through #InternationalMentoringDay, #MentorIRL and #NationalMentoringMonth and on Twitter (@MentoringDay ) and Facebook ( and on this website:
