The Young Women Leaders Program is in it’s 7th week and doing extremely well. As mentors, we have grown and matured along side our mentees and have begun to form new bonds with our middle schoolers. Through our curriculum based groups, we have seen great improvement in not only our mentees but in our own leadership skills. Not to mention we have had a lot of fun learning more about being leaders in our community.
We are also currently beginning the process to recruit for next year. We are really looking forward to not only continuing the program but hopefully expanding it in the future. I greatly look forward to seeing how the rest of the year plays out and how the young women continue to grow. Be on the look out for flyers about applying to be a mentor next year!
