Mentoring with GirlForward is an amazing volunteer experience. Their mentorship program is designed brilliantly. The girls are able to decide what's most important to them and set goals for their future, and as a mentor, you have the amazing experience of learning about their goals and ambitions and helping them find the rights tools to accomplish them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand their program globally, because the program would benefit any refugee girl around the world.

My experience at GirlForward has definitely been the highlight of my year. After working with Chicago's refugee community for the past four years, it's wonderful to see an organization that focuses specifically on adolescent girls. GirlForward does a fantastic job of addressing the challenges of refugee life while simultaneously providing the time and space to make friends and just be girls! It is so important to provide and maintain a space like this for a population that can sometimes feel as though they are caught between two worlds. I especially love GirlForward's mentorship program because it connects participants with intelligent, successful, and independent women they can look to for help and inspiration as they navigate the challenges they face as both American teenage girls and as refugees. I feel honored to have contributed to the success of GirlForward, and I can't wait to see all of these amazing girls become the incredible community leaders they are destined to be!

As the only organization that serves adolescent refugee girls, GirlForward is a vital resource in the Chicago community. Girls who are a part of this organization benefit greatly from the services provided and it is extremely motivating to see witness their achievements. From receiving assistance with the college application process, to meeting with a personal mentor each week, the girls of GirlForward have access to resources that every young woman should be provided to become both educated and independent. Staff and members of GirlForward enjoy working together to provide these resources, and to create an environment in which refugee girls can continue to reach their goals.

Having worked with many non-profits over the years, I can honestly say that GirlForward's mission and vision are exemplified in everything they do, and I am proud to have worked with them. The mission to empower adolescent refugee girls in the Chicagoland area is novel. The young women that GirlForward serves are often overlooked because they are overburdened with responsibilities within their homes and at school. GirlForward's Safe Spaces and Mentorship Programs help to bring focus to these young women and provide them a supportive and safe atmosphere to get the educational help and personal support they need in order to excel and become independent. The girls that benefit from GirlForward's programs are paving a pathway to creating a viable and independent future for themselves, because they are getting the guidance and support they need in order to become leaders for other women in their community.
