Programs: Strong Women Strong Girls (SWSG) is an emerging non-profit organization that supports the leadership and self-esteem development of women and girls. The program has an innovative after school model. It uses college undergraduate women as role models for at risk girls in grades 3-5. The mentors teach the girls to build self-esteem, leadership and other skills for life-long success. As the Junior League of Pittsburgh's (JLP) Signature Project for the next three years, members will work closely with SWSG staff and volunteers to mentor both the college women as well as the young girls, and help provide infrastructure as the organization grows, both in number and service offerings.

For more than 85 years, the Junior League of Pittsburgh has been the driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make our community a healthier, more vital place to live. By partnering, the JLP hopes to advance its mission, as well as that of SWSG in building upon the lessons learned from strong women throughout history in the hope of helping girls and young women become stronger themselves. By buidling commmunities of women committeed to supporting posititve social change, SWSG and the JLP will work to create cycles of mutal empowerment for women and girls.
