6/21/20 Weekly Mentor Update

Happy Father’s Day to you and your loved ones! We hope that today you are able to celebrate the fathers in your lives, the fatherly role you play, the memories or fathers who have passed and/or the hope of one day being a father.

REMINDER: Doorstep Activity Boxes are ready to go! Please plan to pick up and deliver your box to your mentee by the end of this week! Text KatieMae (262-366-0030) to let her know when you’ll swing by to get it. Reply to this email ASAP if you are unable to pick up and deliver your mentee’s box so that we can make other arrangements. More details are in the email I sent out on Friday.

Don’t forget to follow us and tag us on social media! Look for IntentionalMentoringMadison on FB, Instagram and Twitter!

Challenge for the week:

For June, the challenges will center around the theme of Embrace Diversity. This week’s challenge is to learn about other cultures. You could share and talk about you and your mentee’s cultural traditions, learn to say a few words in another language (check out Ways to Say Hello in Different Languages), try some ethnic foods (Best Ethnic Restaurants in Madison) or visit a cultural exhibit (Visit Madison – Museums & Galleries). Explore and learn together!

BONUS CHALLENGE: We can’t let any more time pass without doing the work to fight for social justice. This month’s bonus challenge is to begin or continue the work in yourself. I don’t know where each of you are in your journey or what you need to hear, but I do know that we are all works in progress with room to grow. Here are several resources to help you on your journey. Anti-Racist Resources

TIP of the WEEK: It can be hard to remember that a mentor’s role is not to be a friend or a parent but to be a listening ear, a voice of wisdom and a source of truth. Hold tight to your role and never underestimate its value in your mentee’s life!
