With the summer month’s continuing and school-based mentoring programs like Be the One on pause, this is a great time for you to continue learning and growing as a mentor! Over the next couple of months, we will continue to use the Mentoring Minute to provide training and encouragement for you. 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: helping students make a healthy transition to adulthood.
Check back next Monday for the first tip on how to help your student grow towards becoming a healthy adult.
