Goodwill GoodGuides builds leadership skills through mentoring

Goodwill GoodGuides Peer Mentoring Program is beginning at Richwoods High School during second semester. This program provides peer mentoring with junior students serving as mentors and freshman students as mentees.
Junior participants were chosen based on their outstanding leadership qualities. Mentors will be trained on character education curriculum and guided by Goodwill Goodguides staff. All students involved will meet once a week to cover various topics including Grit, Optimism, Self-Control, Zest, Curiosity, Kindness, Teamwork and Leadership. Our goal is to build a positive lasting peer relationship, improve student performance and grow leaders in our school.
