MESSAGE TO MENTORS
Week of April 12, 2021
Empowering our Youth to become Agents of Change
This week almost a dozen youth plan to meet at the OHuddle House to embark on a new journey to leverage their leadership to promote equity and inclusion in Wayne County. Are you interested in joining the conversation with your youth? Will you pray with us for these leaders?

As we walk towards summer planning, it is paramount that every mentor completes the survey texted to you last week. Here is another link for the survey:
Only after you complete your survey should you start conversation with your youth about summer options for service. If you have completed step one, click the link below:

ASSET OF THE WEEK
Weekly Guidance on our highlighted Developmental Asset:
This week, as we talk about EQUALITY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE consider asking your youth: "Tell me about something you felt or saw that was unfair What are some ways you could use your talents to make the community a more fair place?"
Optional Weekly Project:
Encourage your child to brainstorm how they might do something to improve the lives of someone else. Is there a letter or volunteer activity you could do together?
In addition to our equity council (featured above), OHuddle has organized various volunteer opportunities through the summer. Sign up to help at the OHuddle House at the button below or see your Site Coordinator about how your youth can plug in.
