Mentorship Program Registration Open for Girls in Brooklyn & South Bronx
We are recruiting female mentees (ages 14 – 18) until September 24th for the Young Women Rock! Fall 2014-Spring 2015 cycle. Eligible participants must live in either Brooklyn (with easy access to Brownsville) or the South Bronx.
Young Women Rock! has the mission to empower girls through mentorship, building their self-confidence and challenging them to discover and fulfill their potential.
YWR! is dedicated to strengthening the lives and communities of young women in under-served neighborhoods through a sustainable curriculum-based, group and one-on-one mentorship program. The philosophy behind the YWR! curriculum is to empower young women by having them think critically about themselves, their identity and their goals, while breaking down negative messages fed to them by society and the media. The curriculum covers topics from self-esteem and personal identity to sexual health, future options and global citizenship.
As a mentee, you join an amazing sisterhood. You build a relationship with your mentor and with the group. You’ll leave the program identifying as a leader, being self-confident, feeling empowered to achieve your dreams and… with a group of new friends.
