B.E.L.I.E.V.E. Peer-to-Peer Mentoring

B.E.L.I.E.V.E. is a curriculum for peer-to-peer mentoring based on State Standards for counseling and character education while including elements of compassion projects for anti-bullying campaigns.

The purpose of this curriculum is to help students understand who they are, why they matter, and how they can leave a lasting impact on the world around them delivered through the safe environment of an upperclassmen mentor who embodies the six pillars of character for best practices and healthy outcomes.  We have integrated modules for physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development.  As well, the curriculum is designed to help the students understand dependence, independence, and interdependence to work within a collaborative, team setting.

The goal of B.E.L.I.E.V.E. is to help students practice informed decision making for long-term consequences in every area of their life.

The Format

Mentoring groups meet all together at scheduled times throughout the school year for a total of 20 weeks.  Meetings last between 45-60 minutes.  During these meetings, older grade-level mentors work through that day’s lesson with the younger grade-level mentees.

 

We work hand-in-hand with lead administrators, guidance counselors, and school appointed liaisons in advance to set the schedule days and meeting times for groups.
