Women of Tomorrow Mentor & Scholarship Program
February 19, 2011
Women of Tomorrow has assigned two mentors to my high school. As the faculty sponsor for the group of girls served, I have been amazed and impressed by the ladies who come to visit each month for the mentoring sessions. As a result of these monthly visits, I have seen the girls transform from being 'street' to being ambitious and hopeful. Girls who had no personal examples of successful women in their lives, now had an attorney and a business owner who made time on a regular basis to share with them and provide guidance and encouragement. Just knowing that these mentors care about them and are committed to them ALLTHROUGH high school has had such a tremendous impact. The basis of this program is remarkable. WOT is truly making a difference, one young woman at a time.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing girls who were a little rough around the edges become more refined and more prepared for a college education and successful career
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand it to include middle school as well as high school
Volunteer & I was the faculty sponsor that facilitated the school visits for the mentors who met with the students.
