3. Communicate!! It is easy to forget to keep the other person out of the
loop, make sure both you and Bert know what is going on and what the expectations are.
4. You will have to continue to ask and remind Bert about responsibilities, he is doing 1
million things at once. You can help him tons by remembering the little things.
5. Continue to ask the students about their goals and plans, help them in anyway you can and
continue to remind them of these goals.
6. We care about everyone, give time for sharing and take time to celebrate or mourn with
students (celebrate birthdays??)- This is something I didnt do but wish I would have)
7. Tutors: You may have to connect students up with tutors; Holland High has a program for
this.
8. MENTORS: Most of the students have been paired with a mentor, we have an organized
meeting once a semester, but we encourage them to meet outside. Continue to remind the
students to keep in touch and take advantage of this opportunity. Give them contact
information if they have lost it.
a. Ice Breakers, Pair students give them time to talk (handouts)

Hispanic Youth Leadership Conference
Summary:

460 attendees in 2014
Get Latino students together to empower them to be the change
Equip students with the tools from local Hispanic leaders.
Give Adelante students an opportunity to serve/lead/plan
Why the conference?
Pay it forward: helping others, getting involved in the community.
Coming together and being united
The Spanish language is a part of who we are.
We are not the stereotype; we are a positive force for the future.
Embracing our culture, we do not stay quiet.
Loving
Sense of Identity in conflict, ashamed of parents (when their culture is different from the one
around us). We are made to feel like our culture is the problem.
We can not go to our parents for school work, therefore, we have to seek extra help but many
times do not know how to resource it.

Learning to appreciate our Latino culture
Have the speakers talk about the culture!!

7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens
The content from thi s book provi des the basis for all of our curri culum, below is a
basic outline of each habit. It is hi ghly recommended that you read this before
facilitati ng the material .
Habit 1: Be Proactive
Synopsis: Take initiative in life by realizing that your decisions (and how they align with life's
principles) are the primary determining factor for effectiveness in your life. Take responsibility for
your choices and the subsequent consequences that follow.
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Synopsis: Self-discover and clarify your deeply important character values and life goals. Envision
the ideal characteristics for each of your various roles and relationships in life.
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Synopsis: Plan, prioritize, and execute your week's tasks based on importance rather than urgency.
Evaluating if your efforts exemplify your desired character values, propel you towards goals, and
enrich the roles and relationships that were elaborated in Habit 2.

The next three have to do with Interdependence (i.e. working with others)
Habit 4: Think Win-Win
Synopsis: Genuinely strive for mutually beneficial solutions or agreements in your relationships.
Valuing and respecting people by understanding a "win" for all is ultimately a better long-term
resolution than if only one person in the situation had gotten his way.
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
Synopsis: Use empathetic listening to be genuinely influenced by a person, which compels them to
reciprocate the listening and take an open mind to being influenced by you. This creates an
atmosphere of caring, respect, and positive problem solving.
Habit 6: Synergize
Synopsis: Combine the strengths of people through positive teamwork, to achieve goals no one
person could have done alone. Get the best performance out of a group of people through
encouraging meaningful contribution, and modeling inspirational and supportive leadership.
The Last habit relates to self-rejuvenation:
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
Synopsis: Balance and renew your resources, energy, and health to create a sustainable, long-term,
effective lifestyle.
