About

Do you want to make a difference? Do you want to help a young girl succeed in her personal, educational, and professional life? The YWCA National Capital Area is looking for passionate, engaged young women between the ages of 19-26 to serve as youth mentors in this year's EMPOwERgirlz mentoring and leadership development program!

EMPOwERgirlz meets bi-monthly, two Saturdays a month from 8:45AM-3:00PM, from September through April. Lunch and breakfast are provided for mentors and participants. The curriculum focuses on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) exploration and covers a variety of other topics - from Heath & Nutrition to Social & Racial Justice. Throughout the program, the participants engage in academic enrichment, leadership development, and career & college exploration.

Mentor Requirements:

Mentors should be able to commit to attending the EMPOwERgirlz Saturday sessions with their mentees for the entire program year, as well as 10-20 hours of one-on-one engagement over the course of that year.

Mentors must complete a 2-hour training and ongoing professional development, background check, and required health screenings.
