Girls Inc. Staying Strong Mentoring Program

For a 5th year now Girls Inc will be operating the Staying Strong Mentoring Program. The benefits of mentoring are well-documented for both Mentors and Mentees and can include stronger self-confidence, better grades, improved relationships with family and peers, and higher engagement in one’s community. 

Girls Inc. Staying Strong incorporates a number of initiatives that facilitate and guide mentors to focus on their mentee’s individual needs.  Healthy lifestyles, self-esteem, art, leadership and anti-violence & anti-bullying are a few of the initiatives incorporated into the program through activities that are facilitated by the mentors.

Program Length:
from October to June each year

Registration Open in September 2017
