“It was amazing to see my coachee work with the elementary students. As one of the co-directors at Boston College I know she put in a lot of work – fundraising, meetings, etc. in order to make these meetings happen. There was a great sense of camaraderie among the girls and college women.” – Past Leadership Coach

Professional Women,

Would you like the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a young college woman? Through SWSG’s Strong Leaders Program, professional women are paired up with college women who are currently mentoring pre-adolescent grade girls in Boston and Pittsburgh.

“For my coachee and I, a great success story would be one of her chapter’s first fundraisers, Open Mic Night. She had an awesome idea, and birthed it into fruition. Along the way I supported her in whatever she needed–designs, event set up, fundraising efforts, raffle items, etc… [The experience] illustrated to her how networking, and nurturing connections can be helpful, which was her semester goal. I went to the event to support her, and it was wonderful! Such an awesome opportunity. Very proud of my coachee and her growth over the short time we’ve spent together.” – Past Leadership Coach

Through this program you have the opportunity to give back and share your invaluable leadership experience with young women as they become the next generation of leaders. The program consists of meeting with your coachee once a month, along with attending two training and network sessions.

“I’ve enjoyed having a strong female role model who I can talk to and receive helpful feedback and recommendations to improve my leadership.” – Mentor

We are now accepting applications for the 2013-2014 and are looking forward to hearing from strong  professional women from around our Boston and Pittsburgh communities!

$30 gives college mentors the tools needed to be role models.
