At Be The One, we understand the many unique challenges our youth face today. Through mentorship, students are connected with an adult that matches their interests and personality. For one hour a week students meet with their mentor at school in a safe and positive environment. Be The One removes the financial burden of the program from the school by raising community support to fund a full time Mentor Coordinator position who is an employee of the school. Be The One also helps by attracting mentors and training them to effectively connect with students.
Be the One Mentors:
Do you know how many of our students and their families live in poverty? What does that even mean? The vast majority of our mentors come from a middle-class upbringing, but the majority of our student mentees do not. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to explore misconceptions we have and better connect with those we serve as we raise our Poverty IQ
Two identical sessions offered at Lynden High School in our library and presented by Whatcom Dream.
Open to all mentors at any of our schools–doesn’t matter if you are new, experienced, or waiting to be matched.
This is the 3rd of our 4 Mentor Equipping Sessions for the 2019-20 school year. We look forward to seeing you there!
