What Mentors Do

EFFECTIVE MENTORING BEGINS WITH STRENGTHS

Our early intervention strengths-based approach to mentoring means that we help uncover a child's existing area of strength or interest.

This could be something to do with:

cooking, art, building, music, writing, environment, sport, photography or web design.

Actually, the list goes well beyond these!


MENTORING IS SIMPLE WHEN THERE IS A TAILORED LEARNING MODULE

Once a student's area of interest or existing strength is identified, we then help you design a tailored module of learning reducing the need to plan heavily each week and also so that there is clear direction for your sessions.  The mentoring experience is made easy when a module is in place.

5 STRATEGIES OF MENTORING WITH MODULES:

  1. Honing the craft.  Kids who participate in the 12 Buckets program will become more skilled in their area of interest.

  2. Literacy.  Reading and writing are critical in all areas of life - 12 Buckets modules help bring hands-on context to literacy.

  3. Numeracy.  The same goes with numeracy - whether it's figuring out a football score or doubling a recipe... numeracy counts!
     
  4. Methodology.  Learning to plan along with working to a plan are crucial life-skills to develop in life.
     
  5. Well-being.  Emotional strength, resilience and healthy relationships affect our ability to learn, think and work.
