Strong Women, Strong Girls Pittsburgh is highlighted in the Pittsburgh  Post-Gazette for its innovative multi-generational mentoring model.
The article spotlights SWSG Pittsburgh mentor, Faith Collins, who recently worked on planning a field trip for her chapter’s mentees. Ms. Collins, who consults with her SWSG¬† Leadership Coach as she raises funds for the field trip, “benefits from both sides of the program.”

It’s nice to see how well she’s done and ask her what she’s had to go through and what it’s like to work with her peers.”
