WHY IS THE GGB MENTORSHIP PROGRAM UNIQUE?
GGB Mentorship Program operates in communities where little to no leadership programs exist for girls. By speaking to young women living in poverty during their formative years about issues of self-worth, health, goals and aspirations, GGB is able to have the highest impact in interrupting the poverty cycle. Our program was designed to place in a high risked communities including schools, community centers or recreational facilities, which allows any girl ages 13 -19 years old in the community to join the program.
The GGB Mentorship Program addresses the crisis facing adolescent girls living in poverty, and understands the need for positive self-images, a strong sense of awareness and access to resources. The sessions are designed to be creative and enriching, and we often bring in guest speakers and workshops to enhance discussions.
Holistic & Sustainable:
As our program participants are young women in 8th to 12th grade, we are able to follow the girls through high school and onto college, at which point we encourage them to come back as mentors for the GGB Mentorship or Summer Camp program during their summer breaks or after college.
