The purpose of the tour to each quarter of the state is to provide an overview of mentoring options.
The agenda of the first tour included presentations about the Boren Mentoring Initiative and its Advisory Committee, school-based mentoring, after-school mentoring, and the four school-based Oklahoma mentoring models along with appropriate videos interspersed between presenters. Box lunches were served, and drawing prizes will be sent to lucky attendees.
Follow-up and consulting in various forms will occur after the event. Beginning a mentoring program is a community strategy and partnership. Attendees also received a post-event critique through Survey Monkey in order to improve future presentations and provide additional information.
From Lawton, three Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence trustees as well as one trustee's husband helped us in creating and launching the event. 'Special thanks to Albert Johnson, Beth Johnson, and Linda and Larry Neal.
