April 2020 – Mentoring in a time of Corona Virus

Stories to share (names have been changed):

  • Mentors have been faithful in extending support to students through emails. The surprise has been times students have responded. Also, I have been checking in with students. I Generally ask, “How are you doing?” and, “how can we help you?” I was pleasantly surprised when one Middle School student indicated that her best school support is her mentor. Way to go team!

 April Mentoring Update:

  • We have 15 matches, 6 Middle School, 9 high school (2 High School matches ended with a mentor moving out of state)
  • 2 (video) gatherings with mentors
  • (Video) meeting with area Coordinators
  • Joined conferences sponsored by Washington Mentors, varied topics
  • Exploring expanded options for mentoring during adjusted school schedules

 Looking ahead:

  • Doing our best to support students during this time away from the school building
  • Preparing for the coming school year
