Mentors report to CALL today and even though most of them met at our recent retreat, it will still be great to see them all connect and form one cohesive group. This year we have 15 new mentors joining our five returning mentors from a variety of majors. They bring with them a wealth of skills, knowledge, expertise, interests & strengths. In fact, when we took an informal inventory, we filled up an entire board! Each semester, it is so rewarding to see how our MACS CALL graduate directors and mentors use all these pieces to complete their own unique identity and story.
Our mentors will begin the journey of developing their coaching talents to help visiting students improve their speaking skills and build their communication confidence. This week, after taking the official CALL photo, they will learn all about the equipment, forms, and procedures but next week, when our first appointments start, it will be all about the people. Can’t wait to see what happens!
