Strong Women, Strong Girls
We are proud to be in partnership with Strong Women Strong Girls for another school year! Last Thursday marked the first session, and the girls were giddy with excitement while waiting for their Duquesne mentors to arrive.
SWSG is a mentoring organization that helps young girls realize their potential and be stronger in their actions and have better self esteem. They do this through surrounding underprivileged girls with a strong mentoring system that empowers girls to dream of a broader future for themselves. The SWSG program focuses on strong female role models through two types of mentoring; professional women to college women, and college women to our girls.
Last Thursday, our girls met our four mentors: Julieanne, Gabby, Ally, and Carly. They started with a small biography, and explained how each of their sessions would go. The mentors gave each of our girls a small journal, as a safe space to write to the mentors and just journal their thoughts.
We are excited to see the types of programming the girls will be involved in, so keep checking back to see what else these girls have been up to!!
