Mentoring Young Girls: Do You Give Back?

So yes, I'm a step closer to making what was an idea Spring 2011, a step in January 2011, & currently a process. My friend/ex-roomie from college are working hard to spread the word about MY Girls (Mentoring Young Girls Program). We're hoping to become a nonprofit very soon. So keep us in your prayers for that. We'll be having our 1st Holiday Drive in December & we're super excitied about that!


The mentoring program is for girls in my area Southern Cali/I.E. ages 11-18. We offer 1-on-1 mentor, Big sister-little sister mentoring, Tutoring, workshops, college prep workshops...etc. Check out the website & LIKE us on facebook. Even if you're not in our area/state. You may can help with something later down the line.


This is my baby...something I've been dreaming about awhile now...when I was in college, but heavy on the brain Spring 2011 when I went to go speak at my Alma mater (HS) AVID class. The  power of giving back, having our youth look up to you & to have a positive outlet to be themselves & get the help they may need is an AWESOME feeling.


There's so many ways you can give back in your community; donate clothes to a church (Clothes closet), tutor, volunteer at a school, become a mentor, feed the homeless. I could go on. I've found my purpose & spreading the word, & taking action by helping others. You can too!


I also would like to thank Kimberly over at FWB for designing our layout for MY Girls. She did a FAB job. Hit her up if you ever need a banner, button, layout etc :)
