Mentoring

Be Someome Who Matters to Someone Who Matters!

The mentors and the GfG organization join forces and build the character of our girls while developing strong assets that will equip them with the necessary confidence and knowledge to overcome any obstacles or challenges that they may confront. We do this by developing essential assets internally and externally that will assist the girls in identifying their own self-worth and becoming their own advocates. We focus on each girl's strength and set a standard of excellence for her to do her absolute best at all times. Failure is not an option!

Everyone has a talent to share and giving back is a responsibility we must accept if we are to be part of the village that encourages our youth to be and do their best. I’m sure you can remember some one that made a difference in your life - good, bad or indifferent.  How wonderful it would be if we could all share some of our time to make a positive impact in the lives of our youth.  Ask yourself, “How can I help?”  Complete and submit the application below and together we will find your best fit where you can do do amazing things for our girls.
