As a mentor, you play a critical role in the success of our students at the Wellspring School of Leadership. Our goal is to train Kingdom-minded leaders. How better to achieve this but to place students in relationship with someone like you, a Kingdom-minded leader.
Your job in the Wellspring School of Leadership is to aid, challenge, and encourage your student as she navigates her WSL journey. In some instances, this will mean further explaining concepts your student is learning at WSL. Other times, this will mean challenging your student to push farther and harder on his trek through the program. At all times, this will mean praying for your student’s growth and success.
The expectations for each mentor-student relationship are simple. Connect once a week in any manner (phone, email, etc.), with at least one face-to-face meeting each month for the duration of the year. What you talk about and how you talk about it is up to you and your student. Each mentor-student relationship will be unique.
In order to facilitate your meetings with your student, you may find it helpful to record some notes regarding your interactions. This should help you track your student’s progress and give you ideas for future conversations.
Confidentiality, of course, is essential to the success of any mentor-student relationship. Everything that you and your student discuss is between you and your student alone. Unless the information shared presents a clear and imminent danger to the student or others, it is imperative that you keep your conversations in confidence.
