TGIA’s Latest and Greatest

Thank you for subscribing to this month’s newsletter. August is always a busy month for us, as we prepare for our fall semester program. We are very excited about all of our upcoming events. Check all that we have accomplished this month!

August Activities

Mentor Orientation

Mentor Orientation

To prepare for our new participants, TGIA hosted several mentor orientations to explain the roles and responsibilities of our mentors. We reviewed discussion topics and lessons that mentors are to initiate with their mentees. Our Mentors had great dialogue about what it means to be a mentor and how they will make this experience extraordinary.
Mentor Meet and Greet

Mentor Meet and Greet

During our mentor meet and greet our girls had the opportunity to meet their mentors for the first time. Our mentors also took the time review expectations, set meeting dates, as well as get to know their mentee’s interests and goals.

Guest Speaker
