Tween/Teen Mentoring (Semester 1)
Join Hannah Miller (aka EdventureGirl) and a group of teens over the course of 12 weeks to dig deep into self-reflection, goal-building, and inspiration! This mentorship program encourages teens to dream big, to have the confidence to build life on their terms, and to develop the grit to achieve their goals. We’ll get to the root of who we are, where we’d like to be going, why it matters, and how to get there.
From self-reflection to doing hard things, we’ll focus on six core topics, with six base challenges to help us reflect and take action. Self-guided learning will be deeply encouraged – teens will get the most out of this course if they take time outside of our group learning hours to sit with themselves and take the projects to the next level.
Our first semester will largely focus inwards, on defining our goals, our values, and our relationships with ourselves and with our communities. In Semester 2, we’ll dive into actively taking our dreams to the streets, with resources, community connections, and more to help teens get entrepreneurial, focused, and creative!
Week 1-2: Diving into self-reflection
Let’s get started! We’ll begin with getting to know each other, but more importantly, we’ll start getting to know ourselves on a deeper level. This section is all about setting intentions, choosing values, and getting into the habit of creating a self-reflection practice. We’ll take on our first challenges together and design a course schedule based on our own personal learning styles. Bring your best to get the most out of the experience!
Week 3-4: How self-discovery can help you hack mental health
Have you ever felt any of the following?
- I’m not enough
- I don’t know where I’m going or if I’m on the right path
- What do my friends and family actually think of me?
- Am I ugly?
Hey, welcome to the club! As we self-reflect and understand our most essential goals and values, ugly inner thoughts can rear their heads. Sometimes it seems like no amount of self-love or “treat yo’self” mentality helps – but getting in tune with who you are, does. As a group, we will tackle some simple ways to start setting a track to redirect these thoughts and get empowered based on your personal interests and style.
Week 5-6: Who are you with family?
The people we spend the most time with have the most power to encourage, influence, or complicate our goals and dreams. Let’s talk about who we are with family, and why it matters. We’ll also get into hacking our family relationships for success in our personal lives and projects.
Week 7-8: Community-Minded Thinking 101
After family, friends and community are our next most important relationships and our biggest resource for making goals a reality! So how can we get the most out of our community? Let’s dive into giving, understanding our roles as a part of a bigger network, designing how we want to come across to others, and hacking some of the biggest anxieties and blocks that can get in the way. Plus, tap into some of the awesome advantages that can come from actively creating your own squad!
Week 9-10: Choosing Action Over Dreams – The Hack No One Tells Teens
We’re all told to dream big and to be ourselves – but let’s face it, teens run into roadblocks all the time. It’s one thing to dream and another to actually make a plan and crack it out, especially when the majority of adults don’t actually believe in your ability to do real things. This was something I personally struggled with massively as a teen. My original hack? Do the thing anyway, and just don’t mention your age. That’s how I ended up in a paid editorial position at 16. I’ve learned a thing or two since then. Let me pass it all on, and then let’s get cracking on YOUR top goal.
Week 11-12: Doing Hard Things
By this point, you’ve faced several challenges in the course of this semester. We’ve taken a deep dive into your personal values, beliefs, and presentation. Now we’re going to chat about the one thing most people sell us short on during the teen years – and the most important thing we can do as we connect with who we really are – doing hard things. Join me to explore why and how we should be challenging ourselves further, and how to keep healthy and grounded along the way.
Get ready for Semester 2, focusing on taking your goals with school, work, activism, and life to the streets!
