For October, the challenges will center around the theme of Character Education. This week’s challenge is to teach your mentee about trustworthiness. Trustworthiness involves three key aspects: honestly, reliability and loyalty. Talk through a few scenarios that involve people being trustworthy (these can be from your own life, the lives of people you know or even scenarios you’ve seen on TV). After you’ve shared the scenarios, ask your mentee what they think it means to be trustworthy and see if they can share some scenarios from their own life.
Mentor Growth and Development Plan for September-November plan is here.
Race and Equity
Every day at home, at work and out in public, people hear and, sometimes, say words that demean and hurt others from different groups and with different backgrounds. Regardless of whether or not these words are said out of hate or ignorance, they impact those they’re directed at and those who hear them. Oftentimes, our response to hearing these types of words is to not respond. However, a good rule of thumb is that any response is better than no response. Perhaps try following up with these questions and engaging in a respectful dialogue.
What did you mean by what you said?
To me, that sounded like a stereotype. Do you understand why that was so hurtful?
