Mentorship Program

Our mentorship program is built through example and community. We believe the value of mentorship is realized through positive modeling and support for girls aged 8-17 from historically underserved communities.

We match our girls, or Mentees, with a Mentor that can provide support, guidance, and opportunities to help navigate social and economic barriers and meet their goals. Our Mentors encourage their Mentees through positive role-modeling and a consistent, 1-1 relationship.


Learning from a positive female role-model on also ensures they will be able to face challenges with confidence and will be empowered to think of a future without limits!

Become a Mentor

Mentor Outings

1-1 outings are based on mentor and mentee interests! Many matches enjoy going to the beach, seeing a movie, reading books, baking, going to lunch, hanging out at the park, and visiting museums.

Events and Activities

Girls Rising provides 6-8 free events per year for mentors and girls that are centered around activities which build character, identity, and social skills.

"Being a mentor has enriched my life. I have received more from being a mentor than I could imagine. I enjoy spending time with my mentee. It is a different relationship where both of us learn from each other. Girl Rising provides a foundation to facilitate for our relationship to blossom."

Shelley, Mentor
