Super Mentor for November 2017 was…
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 November 2017
Courtney and her mentee Cora were matched in April of 2017. These ladies are both full of energy and love life! They both love being active and are very creative in the ways they do it. They plan on taking a self-defense class together, trying zumba, rock climbing, and ice skating as well as coming back to our cooking classes!
Cora has been really discovering herself and Courtney has been there accepting her and cheering her on along the way. Cora loves experimenting with her hair color and cuts as well as working on photography. These two really bring out the creative side of each other. Courtney says that Cora really pushes her out of her comfort zone and gets her to try new things and think in new ways.
At first glance you’d think “Wow, these two are really different.” Yes they are, but they both respect each other’s differences. Courtney is more of a girly-girl and extrovert whereas Cora is really creative and more quiet. Throughout their half a year together, they’ve been able to meet in the middle. Courtney has started to embrace her creative side and did great at our Watercolor event and Cora has learned to be much more comfortable in her own skin and now talks your ear off!
There has been lots of growth and change from these two in just the past six months. They’ve become very close and learned a lot from each other already, the next six months should be even more impressive!
Congratulations to Courtney on being named November’s Super Mentor of the Month!
