Mentee groups may occur in a 2-3 hour workshop, a day conference from 9 am to 3pm, or over a few weeks.
Mentors, core group members and host organizations create a potential yearly cycle of potential groups and programs, as well as provide flexibility for specific requests for group.
Why do this?
- Planning our year to provide wholesome and innovative workshops and programs for mentees and mentors
- Remaining responsive to the community’s needs and requests to build supports for mentees in their community and school.
A Sample plan for a 6-week mentee group:
|1||“I am and I can”||In this session, we get to know each other and learn about our unique style and personality.|
|2||“Wonderfully made”||In this session, we learn how to identify our strengths and talents, how we can share these with the world, and how we can support other girls to do the same.|
|3||Learning More about You & Girls Just Like You||In this session, we learn about the accomplishments of many amazing girls around the world, and we learn how we also can do amazing things within our world.|
|4||The Story is just beginning||In this session, we learn how to tell our story to help and inspire other girls and to tell our story even when it is very hard. We will learn how to communicate in healthy ways without hurting each other’s feelings.|
|5||“When times get tough, Breathe”||In this session, we learn how to use calming strategies to help us conquer adversities and difficult times in a healthy way.|
|6||Wonderfully Made Girls Rock!||In this session, we close with a celebration and a reminder that we are truly amazing girls inside and out.|
