Hi there, This is in response to the person that sent me a message about the group focused on working with first generation students.

I would love to hear more about the process you went through to design this group and logistical details about size, when it will be run, who will run it, will you collect data, evaluation, etc. if you wouldnt mind sharing....

Thanks for the quick response. I'm not a high school but a TRiO Upward Bound program. I won't mind sponsorship as long as it is age appropriate and no tobacco, alchohl, etc ads. My program is in four Nebraska high schools. I would be interested in free resources and webinars that I can use in groups. I never have all the students together in one place. For example, the webinar I'm asking about I am thinking of using during our summer program which wll be held June-July. kr

Nice site! TargetX customizes Ning social networks for it's clients - so I'm very familiar with it. Nice use of it for a conference. We did for ours in Chicago this year as well as for an Aslanian Conference I participated in. Looking forward to meeting you!

Mainly Bikrams. I really like the heat. I'm not familiar with Kundalini. Where are you located? Val

Greetings, Val. I practice Kundalini Yoga; what kind do you do? (It's made all the difference in my life.)

12 Tips for Mentoring Excellence

1. Brainstorm a list of learning opportunities with your mentoring partner when you begin your mentoring relationship. When you find your relationships in the doldrums or need to reenergize the relationship, pull out that list and explore other options for learning together with your mentoring partner.
2. Establish points of connection early on in the relationship.
