Students and mentors meet for the first time to share information and learn about each other.
Students gain an understanding of the role of a mentor and how they will be working together.
Mentors and mentees introduce themselves. Mentors share a few pieces of personal information, including what they use to communicate. SDP staff introduce the topic of self-determination and the concept of mentors/role models. To help the students gain additional information, mentors and mentees talk about people in their lives that they may see as a role model/mentor. The mentors and mentees have an opportunity to ask and answer questions about each other.
Tyson gets to know the mentees by sharing about himself and asking the mentees to share information.
