Group mentoring creates a safe space where these teens can openly explore the choices and challenges they face in their lives. The program is designed for girls in ages 12-18. Small groups of teens are in a group facilitated by appropriate facilitators to address that topic. This program ensures that the girls’ have multiple role models to interact with and learn from. The primary goal is to allow for open, but focused discussion about the issues girls’ are facing and to encourage healthy decision-making.
Each teenager must be at least 12 years-old. We ask that each mentor and mentee commit to the entirety of the program, which runs approximately 10 weeks.
Goals for 10-Week Group Mentoring Program:
-Increase girls’ sense of self worth.
-Improve girls’ perspective toward education.
-Help girls’ develop and define their short-term and long-term goals.
-Provide them with positive support and encouragement.
-Help them become self-sufficient, motivated adults.
-To significantly increase the number of mentor contacts and resources.
-To increase communication between young teens and caregivers and to teach them to build more positive relationships.
-To increase problem solving and conflict resolution skills.
-To develop strong self-esteem.
-To have 100% participation of teen’s in SOE’s programs and activities.
Seeds of Excellence (SOE) is a 501 (3) non-profit educational and self development organization, designed to provide support and resources for teen girls at risk, ages 12-18 years of age.
