This team of five amazing women works directly with five high school seniors, helping them apply for a college scholarship for up to $20,000. This team of mentors spends countless hours guiding the girls through their four essay prompts to help the participants tell their stories. Each of the four essays requires approximately 10 drafts, totaling 40 drafts needed from each student, to complete their final version. This is an emotional process for our girls and mentors to go through together. Through this process the girls learn more about themselves and the careers they want to pursue. We cannot thank these five mentors enough for the time they dedicate to our girls each year.
