BigEDidea Podcast Talks with Milton Hershey School about the Importance of Mentorship

Featuring Olivia Weidemann, MHS Senior Division Teacher and M.O.L.D Advisor

Students at Milton Hershey School know that they are cared for and supported because of the work of hundreds of staff mentoring across campus. Through the M.O.L.D program and other mentorship opportunities, MHS staff give their time and talents to make a positive impact in the lives of our students.

The bigEDidea podcast brings educators together to share their passion and discuss ideas that will change the world. In this episode, Olivia Weidemann explains how mentoring solves a student’s need for connection and guidance as they navigate this season of their life. According to Olivia, “one adult can change a child’s life and make a difference. Now more than ever, students need positive adults in their lives to help them with all they are going through.”
