Posted by Sabrina Saunders Jun 6, 2016

11167794_799402163461639_3413624956279632951_nWe are so happy to officially kick off the start of our Strong Leaders 2016-2017 year! Strong Leaders is SWSG’s professional mentoring program, pairing our female college volunteers and professional women like you in 1-to-1 mentoring matches. Our goal is to support our college women as they navigate a potentially difficult life transition, just as they support our girls. We offer training at our Fall and Spring Trainings for new and returning mentors, to ensure a successful and enriching experience for you and your match.

To be a Strong Leader, you agree to:

  • Attend Fall and Spring Training with SWSG
  • Meet with your mentee in person at least once a month
  • Check in with your mentee as needed
  • Communicate with SWSG staff and your mentee to share success and ask for support!

Our application helps us to make intentional matches for mentors and mentees that share common goals, interests, and outcomes for the mentoring year. Please take some time to think about your answers as you fill it out! If you are a returning mentor, please make sure to fill this application out in its entirety – this will help us to make the best match possible if your mentee is not returning to the program!

SWSG is also proud to offer Strong Leader Cohort sessions throughout the year, offering our professional mentors professional development opportunities. Keep an eye out for our calendar and date announcements!

To apply for the Strong Leaders program,
please fill out our Civicore application here: Strong Leaders Application 2016-17

The application will remain open until September 1st, 2016.

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