Programs in Pittsburgh

We serve with the vision that every woman and girl realizes her inner strength to dream and do.

Our programs are structured to:

  • Expose girls from under-resourced communities to strong women role models through a unique, skills-building curriculum.
  • Facilitate opportunities for college women to receive support, career guidance, and an experienced perspective from local professional women.
  • Create a pipeline of strong female leadership in and around the region.

Girl Program

Girls in grades 3-5 participate in SWSG through weekly, after-school mentoring sessions focused on diverse women role models. They build supportive, growth-fostering relationships with committed College Mentors and practice skills like teamwork, leadership, and critical thinking through energetic and creative activities.

Strong Leaders Program


Our multi-generational mentoring model depends on strong, dedicated professional women in the Pittsburgh community. We rely on our Strong Leader mentors and volunteers to guide, coach, and prepare our college women volunteers for their future. With mentorship from professional women, our college women grow stronger as mentors themselves for our girls.

In Pittsburgh, Strong Leaders can join us through one-on-one mentoring matches, Group Mentoring, and event volunteer opportunities.
