When students feel cared for they will do their best!
We teach the mentors how to care for others in such a way that it changes lives: theirs and the underclassmen. This curriculum with its strategies develops in all the participants in high demand 21st Century Skills which can be difficult to teach in a school setting.
Nevertheless, this course accomplishes it!
"I think the freshman matured from the class because they were shown how to act by the senior mentors. I think we provided them with a safe outlet. They had someone they looked up to that they could text/call whenever they had a problem or even if they needed help with homework. I think the freshman definitely felt more at home and welcomed when seniors were the ones caring about them so much and pushing them to always try their best."
