Some guidelines (for everyone!) as to what’s cool:
– Be positive and kind! – Engage with people, make new friends. – Chat away, not too loudly as others may be concentrating. – Help each other – you can mentor at any age. – Ask for help from people around you before asking a mentor. “Ask 3 before me“. – Talk about ideas. – Stay involved. – Stuff you can do elsewhere – such as watching videos or playing games – do it elsewhere! – Ask a mentor before looking at a YouTube video as a learning tool. – Make sure what you’re doing would be ok with your parents/teachers. – Let a mentor know if something inappropriate appears on your computer. – Let us know if you can’t make a session. – Any form of bullying is not cool. – If you have any concerns, let a mentor know.
– Please appreciate that the mentors volunteer their time!
