Now Accepting Applications for Strong Leaders

Posted by Jenny Schaeffer Aug 8, 2014 , , , ,

 As September quickly approaches, we say goodbye to Summer and hello to all of the fabulous programming that we have in store for this year. We are entering the 2014-2015 program year with momentum while we celebrate 10 great years of programming in Boston and 8 phenomenal years of SWSG in Pittsburgh. The new year will be accompanied by some exciting new changes (to be announced at Fall Training) and a continuation of the strong mentoring that SWSG has worked so hard to maintain and consistently improve over the last 10 years, since our organization’s inception.

We are especially excited to announce the release of the Strong Leaders Program Applications for the upcoming year. The Strong Leaders Program is an essential component to our multi-generational mentoring model, and is one of the things that makes Strong Women, Strong Girls so innovative. Just as college women volunteer as mentors to students, we recruit women in the professional world to act as mentors to those very same college women.

Not only does this relationship provide strong support for our college women, but it gives professional mentors a chance to build their network with other women in Boston and Pittsburgh. The program consists of 6 one-on-one mentoring sessions throughout the academic year plus semi-annual trainings and mentoring events.

Are you a professional woman looking to strongly impact the female community? Could you benefit from being part of a larger network of other passionate and engaged women? If you are looking for a meaningful volunteer experience, consider applying to be a volunteer in our Strong Leaders Program. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Support the leadership and professional development of a young woman
  • Gain mentoring skills that are transferable to your own career
  • Join a network of professional peers looking to make a difference
