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 wrapping gifts for local elementary students, playing an AIDS educational trivia game and planting drought-tolerant plants - in order to complete their scorecard.
Thank you to the employee mentors who make special sessions like this such a success.
