Mentors Making an Impact: Latasha Williams


It's National Mentoring Month, and we're proud to recognize Latasha Williams as a mentor that is making an impact. Latasha was first exposed to our Writing for the Soul Workshop™ program by Bishop Leotis J. Jones, Sr. at her church. When she noticed the program's impact with her children, Latasha registered as a mentor with us, completed Mentor Training and has even facilitated her very first Writing for the Soul Workshop™!

Latasha not only mentors youth in her community, she travels to Little Rock to help female students in our program promote Writing for the Soul Workshop™ books at events to earn extra money. Those book sales are key source funding that allow us to continue to offer our writing program at no cost to students.

Pictured below, is a photo of Latasha after recieving her Certificate for Successful Completion of Mentor Training at a vendor event in Little Rock last year.

Mentors are what makes Writing for the Soul Workshop™ so successful. The Mentor to Participant relationship strengthens the engagement that participants have with the Workshop, and can also help facilitators better understand what motivates our participants.

Training is required for Mentors because it outlines the way you should interact with our participants. While “mentor” is a specific role within our program’s structure, the mentor training outlines what a responsible mentoring relationship looks like, and how their unique role and relationship with workshop participants strengthens the overall success of the workshop.
