Lunch Bunch success

Jill,

Just a quick note to let you know that the students you meet with in the “lunch bunch” are so excited to go to the program each week.  I see them passing on what they learn to their friends and that is key.  Also, the administrator and I are using a mini version of your 8 essential questions when we meet with students, thanks for sharing such a valuable tool.   Take care!

My Lunch Bunch Experience

Being a Lunch Bunch mentor has been a powerful and fulfilling opportunity for me to support a small group of boys – at a vulnerable age between childhood and adulthood – develop emotional and social skills that I expect will positively impact their personal and academic success.

Valuable insight and understanding

Ultimately, the skills have a direct impact on decision making, self-advocating, communication efforts, and positively effecting relationships.

Finding Middle Ground

I need to find a middle ground between what students know (no learning taking place) and what they have to learn.

Relationships and connections are so important!

These reminders about connections/relationships are so important. It can feel difficult to fit it all in, but without relationships and connection, the rest of the work is SO MUCH HARDER!

I felt safe sharing

It has been great to get to know better the other people with whom I work. Timothy did a great job making it feel like a welcoming environment in which we could feel safe sharing.

Tone of meetings has changed

I've implemented the high lows to start my end of season coaches meeting, and I've found it sets the tone for how the meetings go and opens up an authentic dialogue between myself and my coaches.
