We are looking for inspiring, enthusiastic female professionals with knowledge and wisdom to share with the next generation of girls! If you are interested in becoming a one-on-one mentor for a GTWT girl, this Summer Mentor Training is your chance to learn more about our program, specific goals and requirements, and to apply to be a mentor! Mentors are a key factor in supporting girls on the pathway to higher self esteem and academic success. Our one-on-one mentors commit to one year of regular contact with their mentee as well as monthly in-person meetings. As a mentor, you will have the privilege of spending time with one of our ambitious teen girls, and the chance to make a positive difference in her life. In the words of one GTWT Mentor:

'What I love the most about mentoring with GTWT is the opportunity to really connect with a young girl and watch both of us grow throughout the experience. I love offering advice and guidance and acting like a big sister. I don't have a sister and now I know what it feels like and it's a very special bond" -Shelly Ulaj, Mentor to Jasmine, Melissa, and Adriana

Qualities we look for in a mentor:
Sincerity
Openness
Friendly, positive attitude
Empathetic
Great listener
Flexible and willing to make the effort
Time: available to meet monthly and keep in regular contact

If this sounds like you or someone you know, please attend our upcoming training and learn more about Mentoring at GTWT!
