1. For your campus makeover project: Consider contacting Trees for Houston if any landscaping is on your school’s wish list. In some cases they will have available trees, tools, laborers, and know-how for free for planting and maintaining items that beautify a school and help the environment! For more information contact Randi Cleary, Marketing and Education Coordinator at 713.840.8733 or email@example.com.
2. For your Mentors:Lemonade Day 2009 is coming on May 3. During the TMT Module 3 dates, the representatives from Lemonade Day will be presenting information on how you can implement this initiative in your schools. The organization Prepared For Life holds an annual “Lemonade Day” to introduce young people to the disciplines and rewards of entrepreneurship and handling finances. Print the information found at their website and take it to your school’s community liaison, or principal, and ask their permission to have Mentors invite their mentee to consider participating in Lemonade Day together. Then provide this resource to the Mentors with your encouragement that they take advantage of this opportunity to deepen relationship with their student and do some experiential mentoring in life skills.
