Mentees recognize commonalities and differences among themselves.

Mentees begin to learn about goals and the concept of working towards something they want to change or achieve.
Mentees review all the information gathered from the Snapshot of Me activity and work with the SDP team to determine if there is something within that information they would like to change or improve – For example:
Prior to the Snapshot of Me activity, students work with a family member or friend to review, discuss and document answers for the 7 different areas.
