What does it mean to be a Super Mentor?
At Bolder Options, being a mentor is simple. Just be YOU and share your passion for living a healthy, active lifestyle with a deserving young person in need of a little extra guidance and support from a positive, caring adult. Get up, get out, and let your light shine once a week with your mentee. You don’t need to be the hero…you’e not asked to save the day. Just be willing to explore a world of opportunity that will help your mentee find, or create, a more positive path toward a brighter future.
Super Mentor for June 2018
Bernie and Jon were matched in March, and although they’ve only been a pair for a few short months, they’ve managed to do amazing things! Early in their mentoring they set some pretty big physical, academic and social goals. Jon has already made tremendous progress toward accomplishing all three!
Bernie is a strong force of encouragement and optimism in Jon’s life. Jon just completed a successful first track season with Bernie cheering from the sidelines of multiple meets and practices. But that’s just one example of Bernie supporting his mentee’s endeavors.
Jon has successfully navigated some personal struggles with newfound confidence instilled by his role model. Jon is gaining some priceless life skills that will serve him well into the future with help from his mentor.
That’s not all, these two have taken some walks, hikes, a cooking class, zip-lining, rock climbing, horseback riding, ice skating, fishing, gym workouts and have already run two 5ks together! It’s incredible to see them show up for each other, and those bright smiles show the appreciation is mutual.
Bernie has already had such a positive impact, we can’t wait to see what fantastic things these two will do with the remainder of their year together!
Congratulations to Bernie on being named June’s Super Mentor of the Month!
