Mentors and Mentees Build Relationships and Plan for the Future

Oprah Winfrey said, “A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.” 
 
IDEA staff and seniors enjoyed the recent kick-off of Mentor/Mentee program where we shared hope, fun, and guidance.
 
Some highlights:
  • Conversations over food, building connections and providing support! 
  • Nearly 70% of seniors met with their mentors.
  • 100% of mentors showed up or checked in!
Some fun facts mentors and mentees share besides IDEA are:
  • Love of music and the arts
  • Attitudes.......Never ever give up!
  • Being foodies!
  • Love of video games!
  • Ms. Hinds, Ant, and Zion all love TACOS! This is what I'm taco-ing about:)
  • Love of sports, especially basketball and football!
  • Ms. Payne and Shanell love volleyball!
  • Focus on the future and making plans for it!
