Become a Mentor
Mentors agree to:
- Be in touch via phone, text or e mail with your mentee at least once a week
- Meet up with your mentee once a month
- Listen to your mentee. Allow your mentee to formulate ideas through active listening
- Give personal examples from your own life where you have learned through mistakes (please do not get too personal)
- Go over course work and if you notice that she is not fulfilling her school obligations and/or is slipping in her course work, suggest that she notify WWAC and ask for a tutor
- Listen more than talk
- Not judge; accept your mentee in spite of her past mistakes
- Help your mentee study or review her coursework
- Enjoy an outing with a mentee and her child(ren) such as a museum, zoo or park. WWAC has money available for such excursions
- Check in with your WWAC facilitator if you see any red flags concerning your mentee’s progress
