Teammates Program at Exeter-Milligan
by Denice Kovanda
Author Bob Proctor is quoted as saying, “A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you.” This is definitely what mentors and mentees get from the TeamMates program.
The Exeter-Milligan chapter of TeamMates started second semester of the 2018-2019 school year. We began with ten mentor/mentee matches. This semester the number has grown to 23 matches. It was exciting to start the year with all mentees being matched with a mentor.
The year began with a Back to School kickoff party. Mentors, mentees, board members, and families were invited to a night of fun. The evening was filled with food, games, and fun. The EM TeamMates Board is planning to have something each quarter.
We are not slowing down. The search is already on for more mentors to join our team. The prediction is that the EM team will need over 30 mentors in the next four years! We are always ready to train people who want to become mentors and make a difference in the lives of our youth. Contact Denice Kovanda if you are interested. Everyone has the ability to be a mentor. All you need to do is care.
