As Oprah says,
“A mentor is someone that allows you to see the hope inside yourself. A mentor is someone that allows you to know that no matter how dark the night, in the morning joy will come. A mentor is someone who allows you to see the highest part of yourself when sometimes it becomes hidden to your own view.”
Every girl deserves a Champion, and we offer a life-changing Mentorship Program for our girls. We introduce our girls to dynamic women who are trailblazers in their careers. Our mentors offer guidance and leadership and provide a strong support system that is essential for success.
We believe that the more our girls interact with visionaries and women of excellence, the more they will believe they can reach their full potential and achieve their dreams. Our Mentorship Program provides group and one-on-one mentoring in partnership with our parents/ guardians.

WHY MENTORING GIRLS IS IMPORTANT
You’ve been hearing it everywhere, from the United Nations to The New York Times: When we support the growth and empowerment of women and girls, we raise the quality of life for everyone. This is because when women lead they not only lead businesses, they lead in their community, they fight for their children, and they give voice to issues that are important to our collective future. So, it just makes sense to us.

Mentorship and sponsorship are key drivers of success, yet women can have a harder time finding mentors and sponsors, especially ones with influence. The good news is that we can mentor women and girls at any stage in our careers, and it pays off when we do.
Girls who are mentored feel more supported and are often more satisfied and directed in their lives.
We understand that like all good relationships, mentorship is a two-way street.

you can ask, "Will you be my mentor?"
If you have to ask a woman to be your mentor, the answer is probably yes. Mentorship relationships start with a mutual connection—and mentors often select protégés based on their performance and potential.
So shift your thinking from "If I get a mentor, I’ll excel" to "If I excel, I will get a mentor." Find a woman whose career path aligns with your goals and work hard to get noticed. For example, share your ideas for making a project she’s leading better or volunteer for an initiative that’s important to her.
No matter what stage you’re at in your career, you can mentor a young girl. If you’re farther along in your career, pay it forward by investing in a girl who desires to follow your career path.
If you’re early in your career, find a girl who may need personal development.
Don’t underestimate the value of your input—you may have just been through what she’s experiencing.
Facilitated group mentoring is a number of girls to experience the expertise of a mentor or mentors. The richness of the experience multiplies as each group participant brings personal experiences into the conversation. The facilitator asks questions to keep the dialogue thought-provoking and meaningful, shares their own personal experiences, provides feedback and serves as a sounding board.
