Hi, Mentor. Have you heard of THE BIGS Project? It is all about getting students excited, motivated and educated to begin their careers. We learned about this project at a recent Take Stock Leadership Summit in Tallahassee and received a copy of the book, THE BIGS: The Secrets You Need to Know to Succeed Beyond High School . This book is a great tool for mentors to use to introduce more soft skills to their mentees and so we wanted to share a free digital version with you. To learn more about the project and book, you can watch a short 10-minute video about THE BIGS by c licking the PLAY button below.
If you get a chance to check out the book, feel free to give us some feedback and let us know what sections you think will be most helpful to your mentee.
Attention mentors of our 6 new 9 th grade students who were recently brought into the TSIC program. Please remind your scholars, if they haven't already done so, that their annual projects should be emailed to their TSIC College Readiness Coach--either Kayla or Nikii--on or before April 30 th .
Progress Reports come out on Friday, April 26 . Be sure to ask your mentee about theirs at your next visit. If you'd like a copy of their progress report, just let us know.
We are looking for mentors who can serve the following students:

  • 9th Grade girl at Gulf High School
  • 10th Grade girl at Wendell Krinn Technical High School

We will also need approximately 25-30 mentors to serve new students coming into the program at the start of the 2019-2020 school year this August.

If you know of someone that would love an opportunity to change a life over lunch, please contact Mentor Coordinator, Gina Granger, at (813) 794-2134 or via email at: ggranger@pascoeducationfoundation.org
Thanks for logging sessions after each visit with your mentee! It helps us so much. :)
Thank you, Mentor , for making a difference in the life of your scholar.
