Mission Statement

Girls Rise Up believes the presence of an adult woman who is available to listen and support is a critical connection for a girl who has experienced the loss of her mother. In partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities, we offer a mentor program that pairs adult motherless daughters with motherless girls. The goals of our mentor program are:

-To create connection between youth motherless daughters and adult women who are willing and able to provide mother-like care and guidance that is essential for developing girls.

-To support relationships between mentors and mentees that inspires girls to grow and maintain their self-confidence and self-worth.

Through our partnership with BBBS, we are able to support girls and mentors who speak languages other than English. If you are a girl or woman who speaks Hmong, Spanish, Somali, or ASL, please let us know and we will work to match you accordingly.

Description

Our mentor program welcomes adult motherless daughters (ages 19+) who are available to listen and support in order to provide a critical connection for girls who have experienced the loss of their mothers.
