The transition from elementary to middle school and middle to high school can sometimes be a challenge for our mentees. Not only are they experiencing a new environment, but they are developmentally changing as well. The October 2021 Mentor Academy features Allysa Diehl, Associate Principal at Schoo Middle School, and Angee Dostal, Match Support Specialist at TeamMates, talking about transitions and what mentors can do to support their students.
As developmental mentors, it’s important to remember the 5 key developmental actions to support your mentee: express care, challenge growth, provide support, share power, and expand possibilites. Allysa and Angee will explore those topics and how to apply them in times of transitions.
