  • Connection in a Time of Social Distancing - Mentoring Resources and Tips for the COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Be Mindful. As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads, it may trigger trauma for people impacted by the virus or by the news surrounding the pandemic.  Let your mentor know that you are experiencing these feelings – they are there for you.
    • Be intentional about preserving continuity in the relationship.
      • Acknowledge what is going on and engage in a dialogue about the pandemic.
      • Understand and honor your emotions and the emotions of your mentor, including the range of reactions that may be expressed.
      • Commit to self-care. Know that it is okay to take a break from the news and discussions about the virus as needed to manage anxiety or other responses to the situation.
    • Be in it together. Let your mentor know that you are in this together.
      • Follow the latest on COVID-19 on the CDC’s website or on the Wood County Health Department’s website.
      • Decide on clear boundaries and agreements about how you will virtually connect with your mentor and continue to follow the latest health guidelines and recommendations about where and how to gather. Follow the guidelines of the School District of Marshfield and Pathway Partners around how to connect and communicate virtually with your mentor since in-person connections are suspended. 
    • Be communicative. Healthy and supportive relationships are crucial during this time.
      • In-person meetings must pause, follow the appropriate path:
        • If you are permitted/able to communicate virtually with your mentor:
          • Let your mentor know you would like to be in communication with them virtually. Create a plan with your mentor about how you will stay in touch while continuing to follow the appropriate guidelines.
        • If you are not permitted/able to communicate virtually:
          • Work with the Pathway Partners program to figure out a way to pass along information to let your mentor know that you care, value the relationship, and will need to temporarily pause communication at this time. Health and safety are the primary focuses at this time.
