A mentor is a caring adult friend who devotes one-on-one time to a young person. The Find Your Passion mentor program provides a qualified volunteer the opportunity to help a Friendship Club girl explore a passion and discover her strengths over the course of ten weeks. By sharing fun activities and exposing a girl to new experiences, a mentor encourages positive choices, promotes self-confidence, supports academic achievement and introduces a girl to new ideas.
It is our hope that once a volunteer has a mentor experience in the Find Your Passion mentor program, they will consider continuing their mentoring relationship with the girl long-term by becoming their Angel. The Angel role is similar to the Find Your Passion mentor, with continued encouragement and support of the girl, exposure to new experiences and opportunities, but mostly developing a deeper friendship over time and being that caring adult role model for the girl to count on.
“My Angel is the best thing that ever happened to me.”
