On the last Friday in February, we kicked off our Bold Futures Mentoring Program. We had 24 girls and their families show up to meet the mentors. Before the big mentor reveal everyone gathered in the gym, anxiously awaiting the results. Once the girls were able to meet with their mentors we had a pizza party! Included in the night were a series of ice breakers that brought the mentors, the girls, and their parents together. Overall the night was a laid back event that created a safe space for the girls and their families.
While the Bold Futures Mentoring Program has only be going on for a few weeks we are seeing great results. The girls are really getting to bond with their mentors and talk about the things on their mind. We are really excited to see how this program will progress throughout the rest of the year as we will take on more mentors and mentees in August.
We are still on the lookout for two more mentors for this school year. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a mentor, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Bethany Reeves at 205.599.5540 or firstname.lastname@example.org
