Many international and multicultural high schools have a variety of Clubs and Societies that offer voluntary services to the school and to the community. Many clubs offer tutoring in English to international and multicultural students. These are known as English as a Second Language (ESL) programs. A mentoring plan is essential for these programs to succeed. Mentoring programs help ESL students build lifelong friendships and learn new skills. Students in ESL programs benefit from having a trained mentor who helps them find a school and a job.
ESL mentoring programs provide a great opportunity for international and multicultural students. These students face many unique challenges, such as applying for colleges, finding jobs and communicating with employers. Having a mentor can help with all of these difficulties by providing advice, guidance and support. Mentors also help ES students with career development by introducing them to employers and helping them write job applications. In addition, mentors can be an effective way for international and multicultural students to make friends with similar backgrounds. The benefits of participating in an ESL program increase exponentially when participants choose to actively participate in their mentoring plan.
ESL students benefit from having a trained mentor who helps them find a school and a job. A mentor is an excellent resource for finding educational opportunities and employers; they can introduce their mentee to people in the business world. In addition, mentors help ES students with career development by introducing them to employers and helping them write job applications. They also help ES students understand cultural norms, values, beliefs and customs so they can effectively interact with people from different social groups.
A simple plan for maximizing the benefits of an ES mentoring program includes attending social events and meeting regularly with your mentor. Mentors encourage early engagement with your ES program by participating in social events with their students. This encourages participants to approach your mentor about joining your program. It also encourages other international or multicultural students to join the program- increasing the number of qualified mentors and ES students alike. Once enough students join the program, meetings can begin in earnest. In addition, regular meetings between your mentor and you will help you understand what you need to focus on during each meeting so you can truly maximize your time with your mentor.
A good mentoring plan encourages early engagement with your program by encouraging early meetings with your mentor and participating in social events with your mentor. Regular meetings will help you focus your time effectively while building lifelong friendships with your mentor. A good plan also encourages participation in the program by encouraging students to join the program and encourage people from different backgrounds to join the program. This will ensure all participants have access to qualified mentors willing to work closely with them on their unique goals for success!
