What is MNM?
Mentor N Motion is an online youths mentoring program that enables high school students from limited English proficiency households to make informed educational and career path decisions. The mentoring program accompanies high school youths with:
1. Career explorations from mentors with common vocational interests.
2. Hands-on exposure by shadowing a professional in their field of interest or participating in internship programs.
3. Enable participants to develop or refine the soft skills they need for a successful career path. These include leadership, communication, conflict management, diversity and cultural awareness, cultural integration, and more…
Match with a mentor
Mentees are matched with mentors with common educational or career interests. This enables them to have conversations with mentors regarding their interests.
Be exposed to professionals in your field of interest to learn more about the hard and soft skills requirements for that field.
Soft Skills Development
Beside the technical skills required to be successful, it is important to develop your soft skills to improve your chances for success.

How are things going with Jaime?
Things are good with Jaime…
Since he is interested in doing some development, I had him look at Java & we discussed his progress in the sessions we had. A couple of weeks ago, we happened to talk about the importance of data given the fact that everything is practically done digitally, so we talked about how big Python is for Data Science. Since I’m trying to figure out what he likes, we may shift to Python for data science and learn it together…. That’s pretty much where we are!
