Mentoring Program

The "20 Choices to Live By" is a checklist that we use as a reminder of the various challenges we all face. The students are encouraged to memorize these positive choices. Poster-sized lists are always visible and lengthy discussions between instructors and students may occur at any given time. As they develop physically and socially, we know their strong character will be an asset to the community, as well as their future endeavors.
