Paramount Survivor

Mentors and Mentees were split up into four groups and had to work as a team to finish "YMC Survivor". They had several stages to clear, from a brain teaser to crossing the lava river as a team, and walking a mine field with their eyes closed and other more stages.

Odyssey- What's my gig

In this session the mentees and mentors in Odyssey had a great time playing the game "What's my gig". We invited a group of people with diverse jobs to join a pannel and talk about the work they do. The mentees had to figuere out the type of job each panelist did by asking questions and matching the name next to their job title. After the mentees match each person with their job they had an opportunity to sit and talk to them about what it takes to their job.

Shout ! Factory- SMC Tour

In this session the mentees and mentors had an opportunity to take a guided tour on the Santa Monica College Campus. They visited the SMC athletic department, library, dance department and the different buildings where several classes take place. This was a great opportunity for mentees to ask questions and start exploring new routes for their life.

WB Debate

Yesterday at our WB Session, Tony and Juliana lead a Debate Session that gave a voice to some of the quietest Mentees in our Program. With the wonderful support of their Mentors, the Mentees developed arguments and rebuttals that would help them win their case. It was exciting to see the Mentors guide their Mentees on this competition. However, the Mentees surprised themselves as they won cases and learned from their losses. This session could have not been possible if it wasn't for our WB Mentors. Thank you so much for Always showing up for all of our Mentees.
