Many youth today, especially at-risk teenage girls, are lacking role models. They are overwhelmed
Mentoring Girls for Social Change
with the struggles of coming from broken homes where drugs and poverty are prevalent, survival is a constant concern, and options seem limited or non-existent. Programs across the US, including right here in our hometown of Nevada City, are uniting these girls with mentors to build confidence, teach social change skills, provide authentic and positive relationships, and reshaping their and our future for the better.
On this program, join host Elisa Parker with special guests, Whitney Smith founder of Girls for a Change, Jennifer Siebold Newsom, First Lady of San Francisco, and Jennifer Litton-Singer Executive Director of The Friendship Club, who are empowering at-risk girls to become change makers and community activists through mentoring and community engagement. Listen to the stories of young women who with the help of these programs and mentoring are turning their lives around to become citizen activists and role models for other girls in their own communities.
