Throughout the school year, SAYM facilitates group mentoring for mentees, elementary age through high school. Our mentors point mentees to Jesus through sharing weekly meals together, working through challenges mentees face, and by teaching a Bible lesson that applies to every student’s life. Group Mentoring is our platform for all other initiatives and is a great connection point for further exploration of SAYM.
HUDDLES & INDIVIDUAL
As relationships are built within Group Mentoring, our kids and leaders have the opportunity to branch off and do more intentional coaching, either as pairs or small groups. Our coaching strategy is a little like mining for gold. It is designed to create a context for exploratory conversation. As a result of this conversation, when needs and opportunities for advocacy, support, or challenge arise, leaders are trained to offer guidance appropriately. With that guidance comes continual accountability and encouragement. Ideally, through the coaching process, SAYM mentors can lead kids to growth by setting and achieving goals.
