"The passage from childhood to maturity is filled with hazard and hope."
— Patricia Heaston, PhD

Why Mentoring?

A means to support and direct girls, adolescents, and young women as they face, address, and overcome societal and developmental challenges of life.

Adolescence is:

  • A period of hope, for longevity and prosperity
  • A transitional period, as one's identity is newly emerging
  • A time filled with uncertainty, of what one can and should become
  • A time when identity formation is challenged
  • A time when decision-making is critical and complex
  • A time when positive role models are needed but not often found
