Mentors and mentees during 2017

About

The BLF Foundation is enlisting your help to model the next generation of leaders through our "Developing

Future Leaders" Mentorship program. Each mentor will be matched with a selected student from our scholar-
ship applicant pool for a year duration. Once a month, we will meet to work on 10 professional development

topics to support the growth and development of the students in the mentorship program. You will get to work
hands on with them, as well as arrange outside activities with your student based upon interests.
There are a variety of reasons to become a mentor:
* Become a "big brother or sister"
* Create countless memories
* Experience a sense of pride in another individual’s progression in life
* Give back to the community
* Help assist a younger version of yourself


There will be 10 scheduled meetings, with a focus on a different topic that impacts college students.
Open discussion is encouraged as different viewpoints can help students understand various ways to
tackle situations. Each scheduled meeting will include a "homework" activity for the students to complete
to demonstrate mastery and also build a portfolio to demonstrate their unique value proposition to employers.

These topics will include:
Financial Literacy
* Time Management
* Personal Branding
* Importance of Building a Network
* Critical Decision Making
* Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship
* Goal and Vision Setting
* Personal Development
* Civic Service and Community Engagement
* Leadership Philosophy and Skill Development
