Mentoring with Purpose
Mentoring should be extremely fun for a young person while also being extremely effective in helping a young person grow into a healthy young adult.
All through a nurturing, responsible, and committed adult mentor.
What do we focus on with our mentees
It’s not just about school. Sure, part of it is better grades and better academic skills, but it’s about helping young people thrive in school and out of school.
At Hinesight our mentoring program uses a developmental approach. Which means a main focus of our mentors is on the relationship with their mentee. Learning who they are and spending time getting to know them, their interests, and what they like to do.
Our other area of focus for our mentors is on intertwining our activities-based curriculum in the relationship and the time the mentor and mentee spend together.
Through community conversations and best-practice research, we have geared our curriculum to focus on 5 areas of development to help our mentees cultivate:
- Social Competencies
- Commitment to Learning
- Positive Identity
- Positive Values
We like to think of our mentoring program as a “Road Map”. Recognizing that every young person is different, with different needs, and different aspirations. One mentee may need to work on one area more than the other first, that’s okay!
The starting point may vary based on the needs of our mentees but the finish line is the same, well rounded young adults who are thriving in school and out of school!
