Become a Mentor.

Help a young family .

Our mentors are the “go to” person for our young mothers. This is someone that helps track the girls progress in our programs, and supports and guides them along the way. Mentors are assigned to each participant, and they will spend one on one coaching time with each girl in our program on a regular basis to ensure that she is and feels fully supported in her role not only as a mother, but also with her happiness and her role in society. Our mentors are there to ensure the success of our participants now, and well into the future.
