Some back to school getting to know you board games. Ask us for a dice and counters! BacktoSchoolActivitiesGettingtoKnowYouFirstDayofSchoolActivities
A nice intro activity to do with your mentee to get to know each other. Print this document and cut it in half, each fill one out and then talk about your answers.
Here’s an alternative advent calendar you could share with your mentee: agree to do the tasks together and talk about what you did in your sessions.
Try going through these together at the beginning of your session – doing a little workout is such a great way to get her focused and in the zone for your session. Plus it’s great for your relationship if you’re a little silly together ❤

We assimilated the definitions for the virtues that the girls came up with the Heroines workshops last month: Virtue Mindmap Definitions
This might be useful to help you think about how to talk to your mentee about these virtues, as well as set goals with the virtues in mind.

Hi All, next week the Mental Health Foundation is holding mental health awareness week and they’ve shared their mental health toolkit and resources with us. This year the campaign is leading with the theme of stress, asking the question, ‘Stress: are we coping?’. It will seek to highlight the impact stress has on us all, and the connection between stress and our health – both mental and physical. Please have a look at the resources – they might form a really useful basis for a session with your mentee, particularly if she’s got exams coming up.
The Address Your Stress Toolkit
To support the campaign, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England are today launching the Address Your Stress Toolkit: a set of practical resources designed to help people better understand and manage stress.
Some fantastic printable worksheets from https://www.christiezimmer.com that would make a great opener or closer for your session. See the website for more!
