Our Mentoring Program matches girls ages 14-19 with women volunteer mentors who commit to one year of individual mentoring, meeting weekly to help girls set and achieve their goals. The Mentoring Program empowers girls by focusing on our 4 W’s: Wellness, Wisdom, Wallet and World.
“She makes me feel happy even when I feel sad about things in my life. I can tell her anything.” – Kemso, on her mentor Bridget
“She taught me all about Biology and what she was studying in medical school. I want to be a nurse and she believed in me. I got my CNA certification and a job at a nursing home because of Greta and GirlForward.” – Consolatrice
In 2015, our Mentoring Program took a trip to Washington, D.C. to be featured in Reader’s Digest! Check out this video from behind the scenes.
