Why A Mentor?

55% more likely to enroll in college
78% more likely to volunteer regularly
90% are interested in becoming a mentor
130% more likely to hold leadership positions.
Youth who meet regularly with their mentors are:
46% less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs and

We are two of the facilitators for our events. We look forward to learning, laughing, and living with you in the in-person and virtual worlds! We're gonna have fun growing!
Sherdal and I have been friends since we met 10 years ago. We are honest with each other, encourage each other, and push each other to be our best selves. Friendship, sisterhood, communication, and accountability are all part of our relationship. We want other girls to have all the tools needed to feel comfortable in their skin, all the tools to be phenomenal, and have a life that reflects that as well. We do this through youth activities and building healthy relationships.
