Have Conversations with Students About the Importance of Showing Up

Whether it is class, a job or a RTSWS session, attendance is important for our students! Every day is an opportunity for them to learn, make connections and ultimately, set themselves up for success in life.
As their mentors, teachers and advisors, it is imperative that we have conversations with students about the importance of showing up, in their education, career and in life. Here are 3 tips for positive attendance this school year to share with your students and mentees: 
1. Cultivate Meaningful Connections: Encourage students to invest time in cultivating relationships with their teachers, advisors and RTSWS volunteers. These individuals can evolve into strong advocates and invaluable mentors who support their academic pursuits, career and overarching life aspirations.

2. Establish Consistent Routines: Create a structured routine that encompasses a regular sleep schedule and a well-planned morning routine. By ensuring they get ample rest and start their day with intention, they'll be better equipped to tackle whatever lies ahead.

3. Access Available Support: Whenever a scheduling conflict arises due to a makeup class or sports practice, remind students to communicate. Suggest they reach out to a teacher or their RTSWS School Champion if they are unable to attend a commitment. They can assist in devising strategies to attend sessions or help them formulate a plan to catch up on missed content.

By contributing to our cause, you not only pave the way for their financial growth but also help connect them with experienced mentors within the industry, fostering a nurturing environment for professional development.
