In the beginning weeks of the second year of the Young Women Leaders Program, we are extremely excited to get started. Over the past few weeks we have been training the mentors and will continue to do so until tomorrow, October 7th.
So far, we have had three amazing guest speakers from the OU faculty come to lend advice and resources on how to be the best mentor possible. Char Kopchick came from the Campus Involvement Center to give the mentors a little insight on what it is like to be a middle schooler again. From Counseling and Psychological Services, Angela Harris prepared students to better understand their own minds and the minds of their mentees. Most recently, Sarah Fick, of The Sexual Assault Prevention Program, presented on Appalachian Identities.
We are so looking forward to matching up and introducing our mentors and mentees in the coming weeks.
More to come!
