The Community Bridges Mentoring Program connects positive female role models with diverse high school girls for an impactful year-long mentoring experience.
Our mentoring program specialists recruit women from diverse vocational, economic, and educational backgrounds and pair each mentor with a high school girl from our Community Bridges Girls Program.
Throughout the course of a year, mentor and mentee work together to achieve the mentee’s long-and short-term goals while developing a close, caring relationship based upon consistency, mutual respect and trust.
Mentors and mentees engage in monthly training activities and events including youth development workshops, service opportunities, and college tours. A Mentor Discussion and Activity Guide provides topics to discuss including career prospects, mental health and body image, and self-efficacy/advocacy.
These activities and discussions foster strong mentor/mentee relationships, providing girls with the network of support they need as they navigate high school and the college/career application process.

I’m excited to see how much further my mentee can grow. I’ve told her there are no limits to what she can do and achieve!
