Tips for Further Collaboration and Success

  • Step into each other’s shoes to find ways to branch out even further.
  • Maybe you’re ready to set some challenging goals. Maybe your mentee could help keep you on track to achieve your own goals (e.g., exercise more, learn a new language), or you could help your mentee broaden her or his horizons, or embark upon something challenging and new (e.g., a new skill, job, opportunity).
  • Check out our Resilience Module. There are seven aspects of children’s lives associated with resilience. All seven work in tension with one another, and improving one can have a dramatic effect on the other six. Pick one to focus on with your mentee. You’ll see how it enhances your relationship and supports both of you as individuals.
  • Laugh. Have fun. Celebrate!
