Peer-to-Peer Mentoring at Broadway Schools

Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity.

Peer mentoring is a win-win for both the mentor and mentee. Broadway school’s campus, ninth grade next door to students in grades 3-6, creates a natural bridge for important connections.

Through our peer-to-peer mentoring program, Freshman student athletes at Broadway Academy have had the opportunity this school year to build and grow strong relationships with the students in 3rd - 6th grade at Broadway Elementary. Throughout the year, mentors have led lessons on leadership, empathy, self-esteem and most recently integrity.

Our athletes, with the support from Mrs. Jessica Janowsky, ECSD’s Trauma Informed Care Specialist, took over the role as teacher in several classrooms. Mrs. Janowsky worked with our student athletes to create and lead a lesson on integrity adapted from our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) lessons.

This has been a wonderful experience for our mentors and mentees!
