FOR TEEN GIRL PROGRAM FACILITATION
offers a unique mentor program called Girl Rising
Leadership Academy. The goal of this program is to give young women the
tools to become critical thinkers about the everyday expectations and
pressures they encounter in today’s society. Students who participate
in this program can expect to exit with greater confidence and the
skills to reach for higher achievement.Girl Rising is structured around
four themes: leadership, healthy living, social skills and lifestyle.
The curriculum is designed to provide participants with a safe and
caring learning environment where they can learn the life skills that
will allow them to excel in each of the four categories. We seek
volunteer facilitators who will share expertise and life
experience in a way that will introduce the young women to the
struggles and triumphs of other women.
We provide all necessary training and materials. Volunteers will
be asked to meet with Program Director for alignment on curriculum with
teen girls. Sessions take place during day.
