September marked the official start of the year for HOPE mentors in Henry County! Students met at the New Castle library for a first event, where everyone got to know each other through some ice-breakers like the ones featured in the pictures below.
In this activity, mentors and mentees form a circle and grab hands with someone across the circle - the catch is that you can't hold hands with someone next to you, and you must hold hands with two different people. Then the tricky part comes - WITHOUT LETTING GO, everyone must work together and communicate to untangle the "human knot" until everyone is back in a circle standing side by side.
We're looking forward to another activity this week at the YMCA!
