Women of Tomorrow Mentor & Scholarship Program
February 15, 2011
I have been a Women of Tomorrow Mentor for two years with the same group of young ladies in an inner city program. I see these girls blossom before my eyes, becoming more engaged in the world at large through the experiences that WOT affords them. With our program of guest speakers in the classroom and field trips away from school to experience both advanced academics beyond high school and potential jobs in a real life work place, these girls are learning about careers to which they would normally have no exposure. For some of my girls, just gaining the confidence to speak with an adult that comes from a different background than they are used to is a maturing experience that helps them ask for help to reach their goals. My group has perfect attendance this year.

Volunteer & I mentor monthly in inner city school with 16 Women of Tomorrow girls.
