Main Topic - Mentors
Group Members will get the opportunity identify people who they learned from at various stages in their life.
Group members will identify people who they learned important life lessons from as an adult, teen/young adult, and as a child, and then identify a few of the lessons they learned from these mentors.
Group members will then discuss 1) what qualities these mentor had that made them so helpful and 2) whether these are qualities that we emulate ourselves.
We will also discuss 3) how we can engage others to mentor us as we get older and 4) whether we have become mentors to others.
