What Makes You Feel Beautiful, a nonprofit female empowerment organization on Maui, Hawaii, announces the launch of its newest program: "Women Who Inspire Mentor Program"
On November 9th 2020, What Makes You Feel Beautiful starts its new mentorship 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 as a community on a monthly basis to share life experiences in our personal development workshops.
Want to be a Mentee?
If you are a woman ages 18-35 who lives in Maui County and are interested in participating in the program, please complete our convenient online application. One of our staff will be in touch with you to set up an informational interview to talk about the next steps to get you matched with a mentor.
Our goal is to cultivate new relationships that support increased confidence, self-sufficiency, and connection to our community.

Do you want to become a mentor and empower another woman’s life?
Women who have life experiences to share, are great listeners, have a caring heart and are interested in having a major impact in the community make great mentors!
Why become a mentor with WMYFB?
● Satisfaction from seeing others develop
● Increased recognition from peers
● Challenge and stimulation
● Identify future potential of the person they are mentoring
● Learning and developing yourself from the process
● Satisfaction at the success of the mentee
● Recognition of your mentoring skills by the Program and WMYFB
● Motivation from self-development and responsibility
By becoming a volunteer mentor, you will work one-on-one with a mentee to provide support and guidance approximately two to four hours per month. In addition, you will complete WMYFB Code of Ethics and Training, and attend at least one workshop with your mentee and the cohort of mentoring pairs for a duration of three to six months.
One-on-one support and workshops provide skill building, goal and plan development, and a supportive environment for women in Maui County looking to take their next steps in life.
We are seeking women to join the mentor pool for the Mentor Program on an ongoing basis. Matching will occur when we find a mentee for you.
Upon completing your application, our staff will contact you to set up your interview. Your application and interview are key methods that we use to help match you with your mentee, so please expect a call and email from us once you have completed the application. You can apply here.
