On Wednesday, November 9, 2011 Mr. Steve Luttbeg of the Crawford High School Law Academy conducted an hour-long mentor training for TJSL students who have expressed an interest in mentoring Crawford youth through CLIMB’s direct mentoring, Teen Court and the Mock Trial Programs.
Mr. Luttbeg spoke to students about the need for mentors in the lives of young people. He stressed the importance of mentors being consistent and patient in developing relationships with Crawford Law Academy students. He believes the Mentor Program will create high expectations for the youth without being overwhelming. These Programs look to be some of the most interactive and fulfilling CLIMB Program initiatives. Monthly mentoring meetings are expected to begin in February 2012 on the first Tuesday or third Thursday of each month at 7:15 a.m., 9:30 a.m., or 2:30 p.m. CLIMB events for November:
November 14, 2011- Crawford High School students will be preparing their Mock Trial, To Kill A Mockingbird at 7:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. No additional training is required. If you would like to attend and help the students put their cases together, please e-mail Mr. Luttbeg at firstname.lastname@example.org
November 28, 2011- Teen Court training will take place from 2:30 pm- 4:00 pm at Crawford High School. This training will be for the youth, but if you are interested in working with Teen Court, this is the perfect opportunity to obtain more information about the program.
