Mentor Development

For September, the challenges will center around the theme of Back to School. This week’s challenge is to surprise your mentee with a little back to school love. Maybe, you go have lunch at school with your mentee (definitely ask them first if this is okay with them). How about instead of hanging out at 5:00 pm, you pick them up from school and take them to get their favorite ice cream flavor. Or, how about writing some happy, fun notes and asking your mentee’s parent/caregiver to put them in his/her lunchbox each day. Another idea is to start a growth chart and plan to see how much your mentee grows throughout the year. Whatever it is, make sure to spoil your mentee a little bit and show them that back to school is FUN! As always, talk, question, listen, challenge and encourage your mentee!

Mentor Growth and Development Plan for September-November plan is here.

Race and Equity

The more you get to know someone and find out that you have a lot in common with them, the more likely it is that these commonalities can break down biases and form connections. Following are questions you can use to go deeper in conversations and learn what you have in common with your neighbors, co-workers and those you meet.

1.) Where did you grow up and what is most memorable about it?

2.) Who was your role model growing up? Who is your role model now?

3.) What about the world right now saddens, frustrates or angers you?

4.) Where would you like to travel to and why?

5.) What are some things you are grateful for?~Taken from https://lovehasnolabels.com/why-it-matters
