Assignment: Mentor Plan

As seniors about to head into college, you’ll soon learn (if you don’t already know) that having a strong mentor can be a major help in your effort to become successful adults.

The thing is, you don’t have to be an adult to be a mentor. As a senior at Brimm, many underclassmen already look up to you. They want to be successful like you. Your actions matter when younger people are watching.

Thus, I want you to start thinking about how you can be a mentor and who you can support in your life. Below is a worksheet I want you to fill out by Friday. Use the sheet to think about young people in your life you can support and to identify one particular young person you want to guide toward a particular goal.

If you need some inspiration, take a look at the video above, part of President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative.
