Our Community Based Mentors and Mentees continue their “getting together” based on their individual comfort level. All parties must agree with the form of their contact. Many matches are skyping and having virtual meetings. Other match members are seeing each other while wearing a mask and maintaining social distancing. All interviews taking place after an Inquiry are being done by staff, virtually.
As the school year continues, we are working to ensure site base matches will be supported. Michelle and Alyson have been calling our volunteers, youth, and parents to determine the best form of virtual mentoring as we continue to plan. We still need to hear from some parents regarding your meeting preferences and your child’s access to virtual devices so contact from their mentor can be maintained. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 517-546-1140.
Special notice about the coronavirus: We know that these are challenging times and that everyone’s lives are being disrupted. We are continuing to monitor the situation. Our goal is to ensure our mentors and mentees maintain their relationships and have their needs met during this critical time. If anyone is struggling in any way, please contact your Case Manager.
