Mentors leave lasting impressions on students’ lives!!

Darren Thompson
Corporate Mentor

Jill, I agree that mentors leave lasting impressions on students’ lives!!  Your company does great work!  I’m a stronger mentor with more tools in my toolbox because I have learned more about the techniques you teach in your program.

Whether you are a school administrator, teacher, parent, mentor or corporation, we can design a program to suit your needs. Let’s make the connection!

Persistence keeps the program going

Randy, a boy at School 2 has been struggling (basically failing most subjects) in school for several years. When I met him his teachers, counselors, parents and administration were frustrated and simply did not know how to support and motivate him academically. He was always forgetting things, not turning in work, failing tests and disorganized. Last year in lunch bunch we worked on self-advocacy. This email is a testament to his advocating for himself…he continuously went to the counselor’s office asking to bring back Gen Text because our work with him supports him academically, socially and emotionally! How awesome is this?????

I really enjoyed differentiating between bullying and discriminatory harassment

As a teacher I never considered discriminatory harassment in school or online for that matter, I always had one broad term, bullying.

GT is an excellent approach to preventing bullying

Generation Text Online is a proactive way of addressing bullying related issues/communications that occur routinely, whether it be between student to student or student to teacher.

I found the Adverse Childhood Experience Study most interesting

The information from Dr. Nadine Burke on Adverse Childhood Experience Study was most interesting and valuable for that matter. Understanding the science behind the development or lack thereof, for some students helped to build tolerance and empathy as a pedagogue, which can be easily forgotten as the year progresses and frustration begins to fester with “uncooperative” students.

Extremely Rewarding

Working with Jill Brown and her colleagues from Generation Text Online has been extremely rewarding for the members of our leadership team. The strategies and lessons endorsed by GTO are relevant, thought provoking, and engaging. The training offers participants an opportunity to connect with colleagues, experience personal growth, and place our organization on a path to success.”

Crazy Schedules

This information is so important, but one that is probably the easiest to neglect due to our crazy schedules. We need to make a concerted effort to make this work a priority and something that we are committed to continue.
