Our team acted as peer mentors for India 2016, and our goal was to work with our India classmates on stress management, and in encouraging ways we could effectively and respectfully to engage with Ashram children. Prior to leaving for India, we offered a workshop on mindfulness combined with tools for handling stress, which was presented by Che Burnett and social work practicum student Cara Bradley. In conjunction, a workshop on the importance and value of play was facilitated by Tera Graves and Jenna Dusynzski. Our video project captures elements of our goals as a peer mentoring team.
