Be a Mentor, Make A Difference
This is your opportunity to touch the life of an outstanding youth in Del City, Oklahoma. DelQuest is a premiere youth leadership program for high school juniors in the Del City area. You can be an important part in this exciting three-day program. Be a MENTOR to a youth!
Last year, the mentor program was a huge success. To be a DelQuest Mentor this year, you will need to commit to three things:
- Once you have been assigned to a student, you will call your student the week before the program to congratulate him/her on being chosen and assure the student you will meet him/her during the job shadowing portion of the program that is to be scheduled by you during October 27-November 7. The shadowing experience if half a day. You may want to begin at 8:00 a.m. and break so the student can take a lunch and return to his/her school for afternoon classes. If you are not presently working, please make sure to meet with your student at a location to share how you are involved in the community. This is a shadowing program and we want to ensure that you experience this with your student.
- Be at the dinner on November 12, 2014, to meet your student, have dinner with him/her, and get to know each other at the Del City Community Center. The cost for dinner is $50 which includes you and your student. If you would like your spouse to attend, the total cost will be $60. Have a short bio of yourself (200 words or less) for your student. Include a message about what leadership means to you.
- Networking Dinner with Mentors on Thursday, November 13, 2014, at the Rose State College Professional Training Center at 5:30 p.m. This will give you more time to make a better connection with a future leader of Del City.
You will be an important part of an outstanding youth program.
You will meet a terrific young person and have a chance to touch that student's life.
You will make a difference in the future of Del City and Eastern Oklahoma County.
