MESSAGE TO MENTORS
Week of September 27, 2022
Start of the Year
We were so grateful to have so many of our mentors launch with their youth in a special way last week.
Whether your youth showed lots of excitement, or gave you a shy smile, please know that your presence makes a tremendous difference in their life.
A shout out to our wonderful Site Coordinators who worked hard to make your first connections smooth!

40 DEVELOPMENTAL ASSETS
Weekly Guidance on our highlighted Developmental Asset:
As you reconnect with your student, your Site Coordinator has an optional activity to engage around "Positive Family Communication."
You may choose to ask: "With whom in your family would you speak if you had a concern or problem?"
Optional Weekly Project:
Ask your Site Coordinator about this week's optional project.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I haven't heard from my Site Coordinator. What should I do?
A: Your Site Coordinator has been working to coordinator your student's availability. If you have not yet heard from her, your youth may not have a defined schedule at school. Feel free to reach out to your Site Coordinator at your convenience for details.
Q: Can I see my youth outside the school day this year?
A: Just a reminder that Mentors are not permitted to transport / share phone numbers, social media, or addresses with their students. Although you cannot individually meet your youth outside of your mentor session without your Site Coordinator, you ARE; however, welcome to show up for their sport or concert, (public events) or attend an upcoming OHuddle field trip. Ask your Site Coordinator about opportunities to connect in creative ways.
Q: I didn't hear back from my mentee this summer. Did they get my mail?
A: Yes! Correspondence was send to all mentees. We even saw many over the summer and they confirmed receiving your mail! Thank you for loving on them!
