Girls Mentor Girls nurtures peer mentoring by encouraging young ladies to share experiences that are helpful to each other. Exercising commitment, sisterhood, social skills, and self-awareness, young ladies of Girls Mentor Girls attend meetings and agree to follow the Girls Mentor Girls guidelines. These include being respectful, encouraging, and validating with one another, and sharing unique experiences in a confidential, judgment-free, environment. Girls are free to share at their own pace and build community as well as support for one another.
