The Secondary Toolkit is designed to provide mentors with the resources to help their mentees develop the skills they need to be successful in school and to prepare them for post-secondary training or education. The resources are available to support mentees from as young as 3rd grade through the end of their high school careers.
Below are an assembly of tools specific to each grade level to help provide a basic set of developmental lessons to keep you engaged in your regular meetings with your mentee. The goal is for you to help your mentee build a solid foundation of earning good grades, being active and involved in school and extracurricular activities, developing leadership skills, and learning about his or her strengths and how they can help achieve a bright future.
