The Girls Rising Onto Womanhood (G.R.O.W.) Mentoring Program
The mission of the Girls Rising Onto Womanhood (G.R.O.W.) Mentoring Program is to mentor and empower at-risk girls in elementary and middle school to stay in school, excel academically, and go onto college. As a R.A.C.E./G.R.O.W. Mentor, you will be impacting the lives of young girls by promoting leadership, self-esteem, and community service.
Our mentoring programs meet weekly OR biweekly (your choice) for ONE HOUR. We also meet in group settings with all the mentors and mentees on some occasions and have workshops to discuss important issues facing most young women today. In addition, we plan to get these young women involved with community service projects through the Capital City Rescue Mission, Habitat for Humanity, Capital District Community Gardens, etc. to show them the importance of giving back to the community.
Weekly/Bi-Weekly (Monday-Friday) 11:15am-11:45am, 11:55am-12:25pm, or 12:35pm-1:05pm.
