The Community Bridges Mentoring Program connects positive female role models with diverse high school girls for an impactful year-long mentoring experience.
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!
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.
