Pen Palling

Who among us doesn’t remember how affirming it felt to get mail as a kid? Receiving a personal note is a powerful acknowledgement—it makes a young person feel special. Plus, it begs a reply.

Besides offering an opportunity to enhance their writing skills, exchanging pen pal notes with their mentors allows students the chance to confirm the relationship, sweeten the bond and it helps maintain the connection at the base of any successful mentorship.
