"Girlvolution" Mentorship Program

We are looking for successful, enthusiastic women in our community to join us in a Girlvolution. We are partnering with Pace Center for Girls in St. Lucie County to provide a mentorship program for teen girls ages 13-18. As a mentor, you will partner with a student to work on a 12-week social justice project focusing on challenges and opportunities for girls and women in our society. Examples of topics the girls are interested in include:

  • Women in Leadership
  • Advocating for Marginalized Populations
  • Understanding the Criminal Justice System
  • Career Development and Research
  • Peer pressure
  • Black Lives Matter
The mentorship will culminate in a one-day Workshop where each girl will give a presentation on her topic. The weekly sessions will be 75 minutes long and held with your mentee via Zoom (and possibly in person). We will be holding an informational session via ZOOM in November 2022. For more information about this exciting project please email Alicia Rolle at arolle1@irsc.edu or call 772-462-7026.
