The Boys & Girls Club of Harlem’s (BGCHarlem) mission is to provide access and opportunity for youth to reach their full potential as responsible members of the community. We believe that success is within reach of every young person that walks through our doors. Our kids benefit from trained, caring professional staff and volunteers who help them take control of their lives, envision productive futures and reach the goals. Core to this is the development of strong character and leadership skills and we seek your support to both models and encourage them as a volunteer group mentor for our Girls mentoring program.
Our Girls mentoring program provides girls ages 8-17, with the skills to develop positive self-esteem, and adopt healthy lifestyle habits. Weekly participants engage in discussions on a range of topics that include media influences on females, dating relationships, and health prevention and education. Volunteers, with the support of BGCHarlem staff, will help to facilitate these discussions over a 10-week session, guiding youth through a curriculum that builds competencies in:
- Understanding and implementing the Boys and Girls Club of Harlem program
- Having in-depth and potentially uncomfortable conversations about challenges facing teens today
- Discussing nutrition, cooking and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Our Boys Mentoring program uses interactive activities to educate males 8-12 and 13-17 on the critical issues that young men face including decision making, wellness, careers and employment, relationships, and self-esteem
This opportunity is on Monday evenings.
