COVID-19 Effects

For a year now we have escaped our regular lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I can speak for everyone when saying that quarantine has affected us mentally, socially, and physically. However, joining a Generation Text small group and interacting with my teachers virtually has made me gain my hope back to improve my wellness. This group made me express myself and create a relationship with my mentors that have helped me stay stable during these hard times. Along with opening up and understanding my happiness, I have listened to my peers and their conflicts which we all came together to create a solution. Not only do we learn great communication skills while revealing our opinions and ideas, we have learned how to develop valuable skills that will continue to help us in the future. 

College and Career Readiness is another major topic that I have improved in by focusing on abilities I need to pressure for my path after high school. We have discussed many different plans for the future and were able to make decisions for ourselves. These decisions will create a huge impact on our way to success. I also have realized the true importance of problem solving, this is because it is a step closer to becoming independent which will help me in college and in my career. I can finally say that contributing to group meetings with Generation Text has made me confident with many skills that will stick with me in the next phase of my life.

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.

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.”

Mentors leave lasting impressions on students’ lives!!

I look forward to my mentoring sessions!

During the time that I have been working with Generation Text Online Mentor Program I have made wonderful friends, learned a lot about myself, and gained a sense of pride and responsibility in my dealings with my peers.

Effects of trauma on the brains of children

What I found most interesting was the information relating to the effects of trauma on the brains of children.

I have learned so much!

Meeting in small groups a couple days a week has helped me learn new skills, qualities, etc. The main goal is to prepare not only me, but all students for the future.
