Mentoring Angels

Collaborating with Raleigh non-profit, Loaves & Fishes, the Office of the Chaplain hosts a weekly after school mentor program on the ӣƵcampus. The first half of the program consists of full group activities such as snacks, dance, art, music, games and topical discussions all led by ӣƵstudent groups. The second half of each weekly program is one-on-one mentoring with mentor/mentee pairings. The Chaplain partners with the top mentoring academic in the country, Dr. Jean Rhodes, based in Boston and founder of Mentorhub. The mentor/mentee pairings first check in with each other utilizing Mentorhub’s “mood ring” and the rest of the time focuses on their skill-based goals, chosen by each pairing. This may include certain educational subjects, critical thinking, mental health, and will utilize a variety of Apps such as Khan Academy, Calm, My Study Life and others.
