Effective mentoring is critical in how we continue to serve the young women in our communities. Our mentoring program provides personal, talent, and spiritual development opportunities.
New experiences: From career exploration with local professionals, college tours, and community service projects, our mentees are ready to take on the world and lead with love.
One-on-one mentor support: One-on-one support is essential to our approach to building positive, long-lasting relationships. Our mentors become a trusted source for their matched mentees- providing them with positive guidance and insight that will follow them in the future.
Spiritual guidance. Mentoring is ultimately a biblical idea. Although the word "mentor" is not explicitly mentioned in the bible, its principles are displayed throughout scripture. Elijah mentored Elisha, Samuel mentored David, Moses mentored Joshua, and ultimately Jesus mentored the twelve disciples. We apply biblical principles to our lessons, showing our mentees how to approach life the way Jesus did, with grace, compassion, and love.
After one full year of going through the curriculum program, the girls will be matched with a mentor.
