MESSAGE TO MENTORS
Week of September 28, 2020
Return to Service
This past week, we launched a challenge to our faith based community. Check out details below:
We hope that you will start to see the Prayer for the Journey cards in your neighborhood and that you feel the power of our community behind you as you continue mentorship with your student. If you'd like a card, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will mail one to you!

ASSET OF THE WEEK
Weekly Guidance on our highlighted Developmental Asset:
As you reconnect with your student, remember that everyone's experience in their family of origin has been different during Covid. Be sure to be sensitive to changes that may have occurred through the extended break. You might ask: "Tell / Remind me about who you live with? Tell us about a time you enjoyed spending time with someone in your family? Why?"
Remember to make your asset conversations transitional. If your child does not want to engage in the offered activity, follow their lead. Try to weave questions / details related to at least one asset per week even if it is not the highlighted asset.
