Successes at Saturday Academy
Nearly 100 Seedling and Communities In Schools (CIS) mentors and School Contacts gathered at Travis High School on January 21 for an enriching morning of dialogue and learning. Fourteen breakout session included topics as varied as early strategies for keeping your mentee in school, how to have difficult conversations, using literature to engage your mentee, and helping your mentee find self-esteem. Evaluation comments included
• Great information and very knowledgeable presenters
• The take-aways will allow me to “think” about my best intent for the student–and hopefully have an impact.
• Very useful information – wish I could bring all my relationships to this event.
• Breakfast was awesome!
Some of our outstanding presenters have graciously allowed us to post their materials on our website at Mentor Resources.
