U Guys

The Ceremony

Each year, U Girls and U Guys will participate in a ceremony that inducts them into the 1 + 1 = U program. This is particularly of interest and importance to the girls, who will receive U Girl Bracelets during this induction. The girls will get bracelets only after they have reached their goals. Thus, bracelets will be distributed during the ceremony at the end of the program instead of at the beginning of the program.

The medallion

Because Margaret loves jewelry, she wanted something that the 1 + 1 = U students would wear to symbolize their connection to something greater than 1 person. Also, this symbol would allow teachers to know a certain child was involved in a mentoring program, and if a particular student was having trouble, they would be able to contact 1 + 1 = U to let someone know. Guys will receive medallions with engraved text, to signify their connection to something bigger than themselves.
