Project Abstract

Presentation describes internships experience at the CITIES Project. Describing what the role is as a mentor to CPS students from low-income communities. The mission of the organization is to understand how stressful experiences impact young people and how can you use that knowledge to create programs to support the healing of students while fighting the causes of the trauma and stress. The mission of mentors is to provide support to students through community support sessions. As a mentor you attend weekly sessions in which you engage in activities with mentees depending on the theme for that given day. Mentors also work with their supervisors to help plan sessions. The presentation will go over what it is like to participate in this program virtually and what it looks like to engage with mentees over zoom, instead of going to the school. The presentation describes the theme of each day for community support sessions and some of the daily exercises implemented in session. The presentation will end with the contact information of Molly Cory who is the project director of CITIES.
