2015-2016 Launch Workshop

Earlier this month we celebrated the start of another year by having our 2015-2016 Launch Workshop. We had 10 mentors and 10 students come out to the school, and play many different ice breakers and get to know you games, in order to create community, learn more about each other, and prepare for being matched with their mentor/student.

After all our ice breakers, the students and mentors wrote down their top choices of whom they wanted to be paired with. Then came our matching! Below are some of our matches.

Our next workshop is on December 3rd from 6:15 till 8pm. We will be meeting in the library at the school. It’s going to a great one, talking about internet safety and responsibility.
