The SIS Group Mentorship is an opportunity for young girls in high school and recent graduates to gain knowledge, resources and advice from other young women. It is a six-month program requiring a minimum of two meetings per month (one group meeting and one individual meeting with the mentor). Each participant is associated with a mentor and a support group. During the program, there are workshops and exchange sessions between the mentors and mentees on various topics such as personal development, leadership, entrepreneurship, financial education, career orientation.
Mentees meet once a month at the Rosa Parks America Corner to learn or discuss about a specific certain topic for 2 hours with an instructor/guest speaker. Workshops topics vary from personal development, leadership, entrepreneurship, financial education, career orientation
Early March: Selected applicants begin the program
