Deaf Mentor News

     

Please notice: This is an old info but I'm not sure they are still there. If you have any question please feel free to ask. Thanks. Updated: 11-9-2013

     
Hello to all Deaf and Hard of Hearing about Mentors,

We are having another mentor presentation for you this Saturday July, 26 2008 at 12:00 at Deaf Connect.  This presentation is from Big Brothers, Big Sisters (BBBS) and they informed me that they had a deaf male student, but the student did not have a Deaf Big Brother.  Well, lets get involved now to change that.

We had a meeting on June 26 last month and the presentation was done by MCS (Memphis City Schools) and the Connect Mentor Program.  Applications were given out to the mentors that attended.  However, in August and September, we will have a big group of  D/HH mentors going though orientation for both the Connect Mentor program and for BBBS.

Keep in mind that Connect Mentor is for in school mentoring only. We definitely need mentors for this program. BBBS is for community mentoring, outside of school hours. You can do both!!!  That' s why BBBS is presenting this Saturday. I had an opportunity to be a Big Sister to a teenager in middle school in Arkansas and it was a great opportunity. 
 
Both mentor programs need your  HELP!!!  It is fun, rewarding and you can help young students to have a better view of themselves and about life. 

Mentors, lets get involved and participate. Lets make this 2008-2009 school year a mission for us to get involved and change lives.  We want to set examples for the future generation of D/HH youth and this is the TIME. No more waiting, procrastinating, or not making time for them. OUR TIME IS NOW!!!! OUR D/HH YOUTH NEEDS YOUR TIME.  Let's get into the action.  Come to the meetings, complete your applications and go through orientations and get ready for your little brother,  little sister, or your little mentee.
  You will feel so blessed for the actions that you contribute to the young society.
 
Thanks,
 
Leora-DHH Mentor Coordinator, Deaf Advocate, Future Mentor, Future Big Sister
