In our Mentor Program, we strive to cultivate mentoring relationships that provide women with guidance, support and community connections. We match young women between the ages of 18-35 years old, with a trained female empowerment mentor. The mentoring pair works together one-on-one and can join together as a community on a monthly basis to share life experiences in our personal development workshops. Our goal is to cultivate new relationships that support increased confidence, self-sufficiency, and connection to our community.
