Improve academic outcomes!

Do you want to increase the impact that your mentors have on their mentee’s resiliency and academic functioning? Give mentors the additional skills and direction they need to help their mentees improve with the PERL (Promoting Enhanced Resilience and Learning) training program. PERL helps make mentor and mentee interactions more intentional by teaching mentors how to strengthen their mentee’s growth mindset, goal-setting, and school engagement.

Participants in this course will:
  • Use everyday interactions and teachable moments to support positive outcomes in mentees
  • Learn to support enhanced educational outcomes in their mentees
  • Create a growth mindset in mentees

“PERL’s real-life, practical tools of building a growth mindset, working on achievable goals and planning for them, and emotionally engaging in school are powerful…If I were a mentor just starting to build a relationship with a mentee, the PERL course would give me the clearest understanding of what I need to actually SAY and DO to help my mentee.”

– Greg Ingle, Executive Director, Youth Wise
