Mentor with EmpowHer Girls

We are seeking women over the age of 21 to mentor in our EmpowHer Girls Academy. Mentoring occurs once a month from October 2021 to June 2022 in middle schools throughout LA County to girls ages 11-13.

Our EmpowHer Girls Academy is fully integrated into the school day as an enrichment class for middle school girls ages 11-13. The Academy is designed to build confidence, soft skills, social justice awareness, and college and career readiness through a robust social-emotional learning (SEL) curriculum and mentorship. Professional women serve as mentors who expose EmpowHer girls to careers in a multitude of industries and build positive relationships. These mentoring relationships result in our girls feeling supported and encouraged to set and achieve personal, academic and career goals.

(We are currently taking our school's lead on whether our program will be in-person or virtual. Please stay-tuned for the solidified schedule).
