WordFrames Program Brochure

Act as a Mentor for a child in a home.
Here is what you do...
wordframes

  • We assign 1-2 children in a home as a mentor for a specific program.
  • Once in 2 weeks, we send you their work for that program.
  • You review, give feedback, ask questions, etc...
  • The child replies (we are moderators)
  • Continue this for the duration of the program.
Things to do :
  • Go through the drawings sent to you and reply with comments and questions for the child which is related to the topics mentioned.
  • Questions may be related to the subject in terms of academics or even general or personal questions that are relevant to the particular drawing.
  • This program will repeat every 2 weeks for the next 12 months.
  • If you are unable to reply to the child, please inform us so that we may set expectations with the child.
General Guidelines

We would like for you to keep in mind the following guidelines when you communicate with the children .
  • No discussions about the child's family. Friends are ok.
  • No discussions about the child's life before the home.
  • No discussions about either your or the child's relationships with the opposite sex.
  • No judgmental statements about the home or the child's current situation. Pity does not help them.
  • No discussions on a "better" life for the child in the future. They will find that "better" life naturally as their self-worth grows. It cannot be forced through rhetoric.
You should embrace the child for who and where they are today. With your acceptance, they will find the strength to excel. By speaking lowly of their current situation, you are giving them the excuse to fail and give up.
