Summertime Opportunities

Stay connected over the summer. Plan ahead to meet occasionally, talk on the phone, Zoom, or send mail. Community-based matches have approved sites available to them. We invite school-based matches to meet at HMK during summer lunch. Please complete a log entry after each meeting – https://grandmentoring.org/mentor-log/

June 9th, 6pm: YGP Weed n Feed Chefs with Daniel, Rob, and the mentoring corps!

Mentors and mentees, please join us at the YGP kitchen. We’ll cook a big meal for a crew of volunteer weeders. This is a cool

opportunity to prepare a yummy dinner together, do a good deed, and hang out with fun folks. If you’re keen to join, email us at: grandareamentoring@gmail.com

Summer lunch at HMK for youth up to 18!

Cold lunch and the following day’s breakfast can be picked up from 11 to noon. Outdoor tables on the patio will be available for use. This is a great way to catch up and plan all that

you’re going to do together in the coming year. Discussing the future over a meal can give kids optimism. Bring your own lunch to enjoy. Summer schedule:

June 21st through July 30th

Monday through Friday, 11:00AM – 1:00 PM (lunch pickup ends at noon, but folks can stay longer to eat)

HMK Elementary patio (505 N. MiVida Dr.)

Send updates the old fashioned way!

Who doesn’t love to get a letter or an unexpected package in the mail? Opening up a surprise envelope, especially one emblazoned with the return address of a caring friend, is

the best. Even a postcard can remind your mentee that you’re thinking about them. To take advantage, email us before June 10th. We can provide your mentee’s mailing address. Conatct:


Mail a card, photos, a word search, a postcard, or a standard letter during your summer, from wherever you happen to be. Your mentee will feel special and it will help your bond grow during this long break.
