“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
We are on a mission to promote the advancement of women and girls in our community. To support that mission, we developed a program to help young women unleash their full potential by connecting them to tools, resources, and most importantly, to one another.
ConnectHER is a one-on-one mentorship program designed to create and strengthen connections between women through learned and shared experiences. The program matches young, adult women with women in the community who provide guidance and support to help them reach their goals, cultivate relationships and inspire confidence.
Matches are encouraged to meet approximate 4 hours per month. You will work together to decide when and how you wish to meet. Some pairs will meet weekly for an hour. Others might choose to spend a couple of hours together on alternating weekends. We want you to connect in whatever way works best for you.
Women interested in participating in a connectHER cohort as a mentor or mentee are invited to submit an online application. When your application is received, we will share with you a short training that you can review. We may contact you to talk more about you interests. This is a casual conversation that allows us to get to know a little more about you. Participants are carefully matched based on their personal and professional interests, goals and experiences. The more we know about you, the better chance we have of finding your ideal match.
Mentors and Mentees will be matched as applications are received so there is no guarantee an immediate match can be made after you submit your application.
We will let you know when we have a match for you and facilitate an introduction. The rest is up to you. You and your mentoring partner will work together to decide when and how you wish to meet going forward.
We are here to support you with ideas for topics to discuss, resources that may be useful and anything else that may be helpful in this experience. Just ask!
BECOME A MENTOR
“A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.” – Zig Ziglar
You can be that someone. Apply to be a mentor and we will connect you with a young woman who is seeking a mentor to provide guidance, support and encouragement as she works to achieve her personal and professional goals.
A successful mentoring relationship is a commitment for both mentor and mentee. Successful mentorship requires consistent, active participation during meetings with your mentee and program events/workshops for the entire 6 month program.
