Our Mission: To empower girls to imagine a broader future through a curriculum grounded on female role models delivered by college women mentors, who are themselves mentored by professional women.
Our Vision: That every girl and woman realize her inner strengths to dream and do.
In SWSG, three generations of females build community, connections, and strength to break down barriers and imagine a broader future. Girls in grades 3-5, who are primarily from under-resourced neighborhoods, attend weekly, curriculum-guided mentoring sessions with college women mentors. At the same time, our College Mentors build relationships with professional women mentors, known as Strong Leaders, creating a sustainable future for the next generation of female leaders.
Our multi-generational model amplifies the well-established benefits of strong mentorship for young people:
Increased school attendance and participation
Greater tendency for leadership and civic engagement
Stronger self-identity and confidence
Increased future orientation, including college and career ambitions
For over 15 years, we’ve demonstrated the success of our programs through our girls and mentors, who go on to be amazing leaders and advocates for future generations.
