The Life Skills
Mentoring Curriculum is designed for the facilitator, assistant and the young ladies who will be a part of your program. The
6-12 week booklet is broken down into three categories; allowing all to learn, grow and become strengthened from what you
will share with one another as adults to teens or vice versa. The core foundation that TEworks is built upon is being able
to effectively share experiences that will empower someone to make a positive change no matter where they may find themselves
The Coaching Section
This section is for the facilitator. Each session allows you to
mentor at your best whether it is coming from your personal experiences or from what you have learned from others. It challenges
you to be transparent with your group while providing tips for healthy lifestyles and advancement to arenas that normally
would not be a thought in a young persons mind. As the facilitator, you have the opportunity to make a powerful change in
a young person's life as you teach from these sessions. Objectives are provided, questions are suggested to ask and "special
notes to the facilitator" will be your guide as you create your own style of mentoring centered around the curriculum.
This section was designed specifically to get the teens in your group to talk. It allows
your group to share what is happening in their environment and allows them to express their concerns. The rap sessions will
serve as a guide for the facilitator to learn from their group what is new in their world; i.e. new trends in music, dance,
clothes and peer behavior. The topics will create conversation amongst your group allowing the facilitator to listen attentively
to what is on their minds. Objectives, questions and special notes are also provided to make sure that you give them life
skills advice from an adult’s perspective.
Ice breakers and projects
that send underlying messages about motivation, respect and the celebration of who they are is what this section is all about!
Ice breakers challenge the girls to expose a little of themselves in addition, teach them how to communicate in a group setting.
Projects are given to the girls to break from the formal sessions; allowing them to express what they have learned through
arts, crafts and community service.
