The summer months are here, and for school-based mentoring programs like Be the One, that means a break from the weekly routine of mentoring your student on campus. This break from routine is actually a great time to continue learning and growing as a mentor!
Over the next few months, we want to use the Mentoring Minute to help you do that. Our hope is that when the new school year starts in September you will be rested and ready to continue investing in your students. Remember…the time that you put into mentoring is an investment in our community both for today and the future. Think about it…the student you are mentoring today could grow up to become a mentor like you in the future. So, let’s make the most of our time this summer by becoming better mentors. The present and future of our communities depend on it.
This month’s topic: how to build strong relationships through mentoring.
Check back next Monday for the first tip on how to build a strong mentoring relationship with your student.
