Closing Out a Successful Year

Closing Out a Successful Year

Friends First Workplace-Based Mentoring Program held their closing ceremony at St. Malachy School on Tuesday evening. The event celebrated a successful year of growth, new friendships, and memorable activities between 4th through 6th-grade girls at St. Malachy and their mentor matches from AT&T and TransUnion.

“My goal is to provide the mentors with the tools to teach and expose the girls to values that aren’t typically taught in the school curriculum,” said Tara Lucas, Mentoring Programs Coordinator. “This year, we had the themes of leadership and empowerment. I always told the girls that I want them to apply what they learned in mentoring to their lives in school, family, and community. My hope is that all of these girls are able to thrive as they’re growing up in this world.”

“My hope is that all of these girls are able to thrive as they’re growing up in this world.”

Using colorful hand-made posters, mentees from the Strong Squad (TransUnion) and the Glow Squad (AT&T) showcased presentations about favorite activities and lessons they shared with mentors. This year, matches enjoyed dancing at a Zumba class, practicing mindfulness, creating vision boards, and learning about team building and what it takes to build a successful business.

Mentors then shared reflections about their mentees and presented them with certificates of appreciation. Following dinner, Friends First coworkers presented gifts to Eileen Mitchell, President of AT&T Illinois, Barb Galvin, AT&T Illinois Manager – though both were unable attend – and Colleen Thiry, Content Strategy Manager at TransUnion.

Thank you so much to all the mentors at AT&T and TransUnion who provided fun-filled inspiration to the girls at St. Malachy all year long.
