    Ive been mentoring 2 Teen Brothers for 2 monthes

    Even though its been a short time since Ive started mentoring the 2 of them Its kept me very Busy but most of All its been extremely rewarding and means a lot to me...I feel like I have 2 little brothers and my friendship with both of them is so Important to me.

    Im always thinking ahead of fun and positive things to do with them and im also trying to think of things that I could do that will encourage them and their talents.

    One of them is amazing at the acoustic guitar and is also an amazing Skate boarder...

    Any suggestions of some things(guitar/music and skating related) activties to encourage him to utilize his natural talents and become better....also any suggestions of things we could do together involving music and skating??

    I try to listen and watch what they are good at and think of ways they could use what they have and become better at them.

    Their are so many things they havnt gotten to experience in life such as concerts,theme parks ect ect due to their lack of family in the area but most of all lack of money so any cool suggestions will help??

    Thankyou

    Shoot a video of one skating, and have the other provide the soundtrack. Edit in iMovie or Windows Movie Maker. Put on YouTube.

    The one that skates is the same one that play guitar...but that is actually a really great/creative idea...I could have his brother(who is his twin) get involved in it..

    Yea on is more into skating and guitar and the other is into sports...but both of them are well rounded teens and show an interest in a little bit of everything.

    Really cool Idea though Thanks a lot!!

    Keep the ideas coming!

    Make a video of one skating and playing his guitar at the same time, while his brother runs over, tackles him, and takes away his guitar.

    Then put it on YouTube. icon_biggrin.gif

    And be sure to save the guitar splinters for a collage.

    Just try to make the objects of their curiosity available to them. Camping, art, outdoor stuff, chess, travel or whatever.

    Yea im gonna do laser tag next because they both mentioned it.

    Im going to try and email business's and see if they will be willing to donate tickets and stuff like that...It might not work because we are not with a non-profit mentoring organization but Im DEf gonna give it a shot ya know.

    More IDEAS PLEASE? Thanks
