March Week 1 Newsletter

In this month’s newsletter, we’re sharing information and resources to help you talk to young people about their mindset and intention as they move through the world.

 

As part of our Magnets and Mirrors Series, each month we're sharing fresh ideas for advisory, mentorship, and leadership groups! Our latest activity helps you start a conversation around mindset with a low-stakes competitive game where the ultimate goal is to see how young people respond differently when they win or lose.
