Atlanta GLOW’s Mentoring Program is a free college and career prep initiative for low-income young women between 14-25 years old. Our program matches participants one-on-one with mature, professional women to help them blossom into future leaders! Starting at a minimum six month commitment, our mentors individually coach mentees and provide connections in various areas such as leadership, career development, college access and success, entrepreneurship, and service.
Each pair meets in person at least once monthly, and has weekly informal touch points through avenues such as text, phone, email, or video conference. Mentoring pairs are matched based on five factors: age, location, schedule, interests, and industry to ensure their relationships succeed. Atlanta GLOW also checks in monthly with pairs to see how they are doing and to provide them resources such as guided activities, discussion questions, encouragement, and access to social and training opportunities.
Mentoring activities in Months 1-2 focus on Goal Setting, Months 3-4 on Networking, and Months 5-6 on Sustainability Planning. Our goal is to help our pairs build the foundation for healthy mentoring relationships that flourish beyond the six months of the program, and to equip each participant with the support and tools needed to build sustainability and long-term college and career success.
