Mentor Development

For May, the challenges will center around the theme of Live Healthy, Be Healthy. This week’s challenge is to get moving! Talk to your mentee about the importance of exercise and some options of how to get it in each day. Then, try some options out and see what your mentee likes best! Go for a bike ride, take a jog, grab friends and play tag, play tennis or basketball or volleyball, go swimming, challenge them to a push-up contest or sit-up contest, jump rope, take a karate lesson…whatever you decide, just make sure you do it together and have fun while practicing healthy habits!

Mentor Growth and Development Plan for May-August plan is here.

Connecting with Families

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!
