Celebrating a Year of Mentoring Excellence

Posted by Jenny Schaeffer Nov 11, 2014 , ,

Strong Women, Strong Girls is pleased to announce that we have received a One-Year Striving for Mentoring Excellence Web Badge from The Mentoring Partnership. We have been working closely with The Mentoring Partnership to improve our program and reach national standards of excellence. By receiving this award we are joining hundreds of other mentoring organizations across the United States who also hold the highest standards of quality in their programs.

The Mentoring Partnership is a program that helps children by delivering resources to mentoring programs. They promote the importance of quality mentoring; present best practices and research; and deliver training assistance and professional development for the staff and volunteers of local programs. They provide a link between national efforts and the local programs and organization that foster quality mentoring relationships.

SWSG Team Member, Jenny Schaeffer, says “The opportunity to work closely with The Mentoring Partnership on long-term projects and planning initiatives is priceless—having a sounding board of experts in the mentoring field allows us to continuously strengthen our program for our girls and volunteers.”

Strong Women, Strong Girls is constantly looking for ways to better serve our girls so we are excited to have reached this milestone with our friends at The Mentoring Partnership. We look forward to a continued partnership with them for the years to come.
