Walk With Sally tries to enhance our mentoring support by offering further support through our additional support program. The goal of this program is to increase one-on-one and group activities in hopes of moving towards hope and healing. Discover programs, including Hope for the Holidays, Molly’s Corner, Bonus Activities, and the Junior Mentor Program.
Hope For The Holidays
For families in our mentoring program, the holidays can often be a difficult time. WWS offers these families hope by finding individuals/companies /organizations willing to provide a few items that can make the holiday season a little bit brighter!
Each year Walk With Sally hosts up to six bonus activities to expose our Friendships to new experiences. By partnering with local foundations we have sent our mentees and mentors to Dodger baseball games, Galaxy soccer games, The Nutcracker performances and Los Angeles Clippers basketball games among other activities.
The Molly’s Corner book collection is distributed to anyone who contacts Walk With Sally and needs resources on coping with their cancer story. The Molly’s Corner journal will be handed to both the mentor and mentee at the match day. The journals will have a special note from the Walk With Sally staff welcoming the mentor and mentee into the Walk With Sally community along with a tribute to Molly and her story. There will also be a list of recommended ideas for the mentor and mentee to journal about (i.e reflecting on your time with your mentor, highlights of being a mentee, next time I am with my mentor I want to)
The Junior Mentor Program is designed to engage older mentees on a deeper level while giving them a leadership role within the Walk With Sally Mentoring Program. We believe this will instill a sense of leadership, and provide them with the interpersonal skills. This will be achieved by encouraging mentees to give back, preparing them for the next chapter their life. If the mentee chooses to participate in the Junior Mentor Program they will become a candidate for Walk With Sally’s Young Leaders Scholarship.
