Challenge for the week:
For March, the challenges will center around the theme of Literacy. This week’s challenge is to do an activity that involves reading directions. Follow a recipe to bake cookies or muffins or, find online directions for a DIY project or craft. Is your mentee into drama? Find a two character play and read the script together! Like to play games? Open a board game and follow the directions to learn how to play. Whatever you choose, encourage your mentee to do the reading and guide you. Have fun!
BONUS CHALLENGE: March is Women’s History Month. Check out these links, Women’sHistoryMonth.gov or 31 Ways to Celebrate Women’s History Month or Women-Owned Companies for ideas on learning, sharing and growing in knowledge and awareness.
TIP of the WEEK:
The mission of Intentional Mentoring is to have Mentors interact with school, community, and families in order to strengthen the support network for students facing adversity. As you’re pursuing a closer relationship with your mentee’s family, keep your and your mentee’s family’s cultural responses to relationships in mind. Think about the ways different cultures approach personal space, communication and involvement. Before assuming, ask. Before judging, consider. Before avoiding, share. Being aware is the first step to understanding!
