Today, I attended the closing of the mentoring program which signifies the end of the program school year. I was very proud to see so many parents, mentees, mentors and others who gave support in some way throughout the entire program school year.
The theme for the ceremony was "Blending Old Traditions with New Ideas." This theme brought a lot home for me because I've been a mentor for the past six years and have had a few mentees who didn't quite understand the value of what we were trying to give them. However,the mentee that I'm currently assigned to is very much aware of what the program and fellowshiping with other mentees mean to her. It's a joy to have this understanding which is shared with the parent as well. To me, it's a collaborative effort on everyone's part to make the mentoring program the best that it can be.
With that being said, I look forward to the next program year with fresh new ideas to keep all the mentees and mentors engaged!
