Young Leaders: Growing Through Mentoring

Enrichment students in fourth and seventh grades have embarked on a journey as service-learning mentors in collaboration with the Dawson-Bryant Elementary and Middle School Pre-school Programs.  Students are serving as young leaders while they practice their reading skills and write stories that include advanced standards based objectives to present to the preschool children. The characteristics of these successful young mentors “include eagerness, creativity, sensitivity to the developmental needs of the mentee, good communication and problem-solving skills, flexibility, and high academic ability” (Batten & Rogers, 1993; Clasen & Clasen,1997).  

Enrichment students are engaged in writing stories while growing as leaders in their community in this win-win opportunity. Pre-school students have gained in social skills and communication experiences as they interact with the Enrichment students. This on-going collaboration will serve as a valuable experience for our students throughout the remainder of the year.
