This document is one of three products developed as part of a 2-year project designed to increase the motivation of minority young women to pursue occupations and careers that will be in demand in the future. It is hoped that these products will help schools and businesses to cooperate in conducting a mentoring program. This workbook was designed for students to use during the mentorship. It contains information, activities, and questions for students to consider and complements the activities described in the mentor ideabook. The first section, "What's This All About," describes a career journal and gives reasons for students to keep such a journal. It also describes a mentor and considers how mentoring can benefit the student. The next section provides students with a set of questions that they can ask their mentor about the mentor's job, the future of that type of occupation, how the mentor got the job, how he/she feels about the job, and how the job affects the mentor's personal life. The next section, "Thoughts and Reflections," asks students questions that will make them think about how they handle themselves in a variety of situations, suggesting that students write their answers to the questions and discuss them with their mentors. The final section helps the student to put all the mentoring information together and to record her thoughts and feelings about the experience. (NB)
