I noticed that Ahsoka spends time with younglings during some of the episodes like Grievous Intrigue and the episodes where she helps a group get their lightsaber crystals. Is this part of her padawan duties? Is she part of some kind of a big sister program with them?
“Big Sister Program” I love it!
I am under the impression that is not the case necessarily and that it was a request made by the Jedi Council or that Anakin needed to go off on a solo mission so they had to give Ahsoka something to do. Yoda was present during the Gathering for the kyber crystals, so it made me think it was a prearranged thing with the Jedi Council.
Ahsoka also technically has teaching experience after the ordeal in Mandalore, so she must have been considered a favorable choice for accompanying the Younglings and teaching them about hands on experience with a lightsaber.
I wouldn’t know if this kind of task would be given to other seasoned Padawans, but I do not see any reason why it shouldn’t. Being able to learn from someone who isn’t too much older than you that can still relate to being a Youngling themselves is pretty valuable and probably appreciated.
