Paramount's mentoring programs at both Le Conte Middle and Helen Bernstein High Schools celebrated the holidays with unique sessions.
Mentors and mentees at Le Conte Middle School held a multicultural holiday celebration, learning about holidays including Diwali, Chinese New Year, Ramadan, Kwanzaa and more. Using this new knowledge, they were then challenged to work in small teams to create and present their own new cultures.
In the high school program, mentees and mentors went on a scavenger hunt - a giving back scavenger hunt. Each mentor/mentee team had to complete tasks at four volunteer stations - including writing letters to soldiers serving overseas and taking photos for the Facing AIDS campaign - in order to complete their scorecard.
Thank you to the employee mentors who make special sessions like this such a success.
