Our mentoring program is designed to help adolescent and teenage girls feel good about themselves and their future development, despite the loss or impending loss of their mother, and to help build their confidence in the support system they have around them. Usually, family and friends are the foundational layer of that support system. But having access to other trusted adults can serve as another layer of support, and mentors are a great option.
Mentors can help youth expand their life perspectives, overcome challenges, and build on their strengths to make positive choices that will propel them into a fulfilling future. We believe mentors can be a wellspring of compassion, encouragement, guidance and support.
For that reason, Harriett's Daughters offers one-on-one mentoring, group mentoring, and distance mentoring (as needed).
