  • Description

    The Ayuda Foundation would like to train student leaders or students skilled in the use of technology to be mentors for their schoolmates to register for and use the service learning website. School groups, such as the National Honor Society, student government, or ROTC, can request a training so that those trained can be mentors to their classmates. 

    Career Pathway/Field

    Education, computer science


    The objective is for students to have the technical and communication skills to assist their fellow students to register for and use the Guam Service Learning website. 

    Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas:

    Present information, findings, and supporting evidence clearly, concisely, and logically such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, substance, and style are appropriate to purpose, audience, and task.

    Make strategic use of digital media (e.g., textual, graphical, audio, visual, and interactive elements) in presentations to enhance understanding of findings, reasoning, and evidence and to add interest.

    Adapt speech to a variety of contexts and tasks, demonstrating command of formal English when indicated or appropriate. (See grades 9-10 Language standards 1 and 3 here for specific expectations.)


    Diane Aoki, Project Manager for the Guam Servlce Learning website, and the school advisor for the organization will schedule a time for the training to occur. The  training itself is the Preparation in the PARC model and will take 1 hour. The A (action/activity) will be when the mentors teach other classmates to use the website. This can be validated in the field that says How did you hear about this website, the mentee would type in the mentor's name. It is estimated that it takes 2 minutes to sign up. Therefore, 20-30 student signups should take an hour.  Mentor would need to Reflect on this service learning by addressing these questions: How was this an example of service learning? What did I learn and how did I serve? How many students did I help? What kinds of service learning projects would you or your mentees like to see on the website? The Reflection should take 1 hour. Therefore, a total of 3 hours can be earned for this project. More can be negotiated (additional 20 students = 1 additional hour). Diane Aoki strongly recommends that all students turn in their reflection (via email) to her prior to turning it into their school teacher. She can help assure that it will be acceptable to the teacher. The Celebration would be in the form of a certificate of completion at the end of the project upon submission and upload of the reflection onto the Student Mentor's dashboard. 


    MS. Aoki will be able to gauge whether or not Student Mentor registered their classmate by the identification of the student on the website in the appropriate field. She will approve your service learning hours according to this piece of data, so don't forget to have the students that you help write in your name. If this is not done, the student will need to take it upon him or herself to provide the names of the students that he or she registered. Teachers who approve students'  final hours to log into the student record will verify that the reflection is appropriate and adequate. For example, Diane Aoki will  approve the 2 hours for the P and the A and teacher will only approve the total 3 hours if the Reflection is acceptable.
