About High School Group Mentoring
At Chopticon High, Leonardtown High, and Great Mills High, FLOW supports group mentoring programs in which groups of students meet with dynamic teacher or staff mentors. Each school has a young women’s mentoring group and a young men’s mentoring group. These groups participate in gender-specific programming to help build social, emotional, academic, and practical skills.
At Leonardtown High the mentoring groups are called Ladies of Excellence and Men of Honor.
At Chopticon High the mentoring groups are called Ladies of Excellence and The Elite.
At Great Mills the mentoring groups are called Ladies of Excellence and Men of Honor and are supported in partnership with 21st Century After School Programs.
Men of Honor and Ladies of Excellence mentoring programs seek to create a brotherhood and sisterhood dedicated to the self-empowerment of secondary students by providing the tools to help them make positive choices to achieve both academic and personal success; and overcome barriers preventing them from developing into their full potential. As a result, students will be capable of making informed, responsible decisions in their personal lives and as involved members of their communities.
The primary goal of Ladies of Excellence and Men of Honor is to develop and strengthen trusting relationships between students and adults; thereby nurturing individual character and spiritual development.
Mentoring Program Monthly Themes include:
Career Planning & Readiness
Community service projects, as well as, field trips and extended learning opportunities are also major components.
Each group mentoring program meets after school for approximately one and a half hours every week throughout the academic year.
