“The results of philanthropy are always beyond calculation.”
- Miriam Beard
Teen mentors at local High Schools learn how positive self-image and healthy self-esteem affect their ability to build successful relationships. They are taught communication skills, anger/anxiety management techniques, and conflict resolution skills.
At the end of training, these lessons are reinforced as these teens bring the skills they learned into local elementary schools. Along with training in lesson planning and elementary-age classroom management techniques, the teen mentors use games and role play to teach younger students the importance of accepting themselves and other people and embracing their differences.
