Young Women Rock! is dedicated to strengthening the lives and communities of young women in under-served neighborhoods through a sustainable curriculum-based, group and one-on-one mentorship program. The program has the mission to empower girls through mentorship, building their self-confidence and challenging them to discover and fulfill their potential.
As a mentor, we provide a stable, positive, and safe relationship for our mentees. This relationship encourages their ambition, self-confidence and growth, allows them to trust and shows them that they are supported and have someone to come to for guidance.
Mentors dedicate Saturdays from 1:00-3:30PM for one full academic year (September 2016-May 2017).
The Fall 2016-Spring 2017 program begins for mentors with mandatory training on Saturday, September 10, 2016, and on site orientation on Saturday, September 17, 2016 in the Bronx and in Brooklyn.
