Mentor Guide and Responsibilities
1.)Be a positive role model. Most other rules will elaborate more on how to be a positive role model.
2.)Get to know ALL of your mentees on a personal level. Small talk is often awkward and uncomfortable, but it is your job to create a comfortable environment for the underclassmen. More often than not one or two mentees will be more likely to speak than others, but don’t let them control the entire conversation. Ask everyone questions in your group. Two mentors are given per group to help diminish lack of discussion topics and to balance personable skills. If more discussion topics are needed feel free to ask for advice. Also, this requires a social media basis and having their phone numbers. Mentees may feel awkward adding mentors on social media, which is why mentors should take the initiative.
3.)Attend weekly meetings. If for any reason you cannot make a meeting please let your other mentor know and Bryan or Rob.
4.)Attend community service events. Encouraging mentee attendance will help develop the mentees to become well-rounded professionals as well as build a positive reputation for the club. Mentees are more likely to attend if they know someone else on a more personal level that is also going.
5.)Take group attendance before every meeting. There will be a sign in sheet at your spot every Wednesday meeting.
6.)Have knowledge. Once mentees feel comfortable around their mentor questions will start to flow. Mentors are in charge of answering all questions their mentees may have and if an answer can’t be given, then ask another mentor or faculty member within the University. Someone will know the answer.
