Mentoring the 100 Way
Mentoring the 100 Way Across A Lifetime is one of our core programs impacting our community.
Collaboration between the home, the school and the community provides the foundation for the mentoring process. It is what is called the “Success Triangle.” This support, counsel, friendship, reinforcement, and encouragement from positive role models, has proven to be successful.
The 100 is committed to mentoring and supporting individuals as they pursue goals throughout their lifetime. Additionally, we focus on Health & Wellness, Leadership, Education, and Economic Development.
Workshops for children and youth include topics such as:
• Positive Self Identity and Personal Vision
• Life Skills
• Social and Emotional Skills
• Moral Character
• Work Ethic
• Lifelong Learning
Mentoring the 100 Way uses three different techniques:
1. 1:1 Mentoring
2. Group Mentoring
3. Tag Team Mentoring
All techniques focus on being S.M.A.R.T.:
Specific: Specific and clearly defined mentoring population
Measurable:Measure and evaluate effectiveness
Attainable:Setting goals that are attainable for the children and mentors
Realistic: Goals should be realistic (makes sense to the mentee)
Target Driven:The chapter should have a set target of pursuit
