What is day-to-day for a mentor?
During your time together, you and the child will plan to do the activities you both enjoy. These might be watching a movie, bowling, picnics, playing ball, sharing a project, shopping, or just relaxing at home.
You might share trade or sports skills with the child or help with tutoring in academic subjects. Reading a story or article of mutual interest with the child and discussing the ideas presented can be a great way to share perspective and values.
Extended visits and time away from campus are special; however, these times should be balanced. It is not in the best interest of the child to be separated from their cottage and routine for a major part of their free time.
