family groupswhere there are 3 or 4 mentors mentoring 6 or 7 youth. Only this year more mentors signed up and fewer kids did, so it's almost one to one. My group is 5 mentors and 6 students.
In any case, the students this year seem much more committed than last year, and much more open. At least the kids with whom I'll be working.
Last year, everyone set a goal for themselves, both mentors and students. This year the plan is slightly different. Students who were strong socially set social goals. Students who were strong academically set academic goals. So this year everyone will be setting two goals, one social and one academic. The goal setting will come on Thursday.
