Brainstorming done with Casady YAC Co-Presidents
- Safra and Mariam will not become mentors, but will provide service-learning opportunities when their schedule permits it. One of the ideas discussed was the project with succulent plants they experienced at the environmental club booth during the Walk-A-Thon. They are considering bringing that project to Stanley Hupfeld during the 11 Days of Global Unity.
- Mrs. Clay asked meeting participants to check the Peace Week PP and give ideas for possible Chapel speakers and activities at Casady, Stanley Hupfeld, Boys and Girls Club, and Special Care. Mrs. Clay stated that all of those organizations could collaborate during MLK Day and Global Youth Service Day experiences to get the required 500 volunteers per activity in the grant. Please send ideas diverse grades can do together, like the Peace Silhouettes Project preparing for PEACE WEEK!
- Mariam explained to Mrs. Campbell the Casady schedule and Tuesdays or Wednesdays were chosen because those are days 11th and 12th graders have off campus lunch and those were the days suggested by the Casady administrators to Erik when he started to look at a possible mentoring program. Jacob and Ford will make the final decision regarding the date as they are the facilitators of this project.
We will allocate lunch funding for mentors during the days of service. Stanley Hupfeld willl help cover the lunch of the group assigned to Casady mentors who will come during lunch and activities once a week.
- Safra and Mariam found the meeting informative and are cautiously optimistic about the recruitment of 8 mentors for the first year.
Hurdles to overcome: Committing little free time, transportation. The transportation of Cyclones who cannot drive will be taken care by Mrs. Clay as the official PH driver.
Incentives: Relationship building, pizza lunch provided, opportunity to team mentor to insure sustainability of interaction. Opportunities to bring personal projects sporadically if not able to become a mentor.
Meeting adjourned at 10:00. Next meeting Monday at 9:00 am at Stanley Hupfeld. Agenda: Grant Writing. Mrs. Clay will check with Jacob and Ford. Hope they will join the grant writing team.
