Trusting Mentoring Relationships is a powerful developmental tool that encourages and supports girls emotionally, academically and socially in achieving goals and reaching their highest potential. Girls Inc. uses a group mentoring model that enhances girls’ ability to share experiences in safe spaces, to learn and grow with their peers, and to gain the confidence to pursue desired aspirations. We also utilize trained staff and volunteer mentors, a critical component for more satisfying and longer-lasting mentoring relationships and for more positive outcomes for mentees.
