This mentoring program matches girls aged 9 to 13 with adult mentors, creating relationships that foster positive life skills. The program aims to reach girls living in rural county areas, as well as immigrants and newcomers. In three-hour sessions held every other week, the girls learn to find their voices, advocate for themselves, and address equality and inclusion. Participants are encouraged to dream big, to work together to accomplish their goals, and to pursue their visions of success. There is also an opportunity for older girls to act as mentors to support new program participants.
