MENTORING PROGRAm

Through our six-month mentoring program, Atlanta GLOW engages youth and young adults in an individualized and community-based process that facilitates growth towards greater self-sufficiency and successful goal achievement through a guided series of exploration, life skills training, mentoring and futures planning.

Program Location

We offer a hybrid mentoring format (virtual, phone, and/or in-person) based on the comfort level of each individual mentoring pair. The locations of individual mentoring sessions are predominantly community-based, also depending on the preferences of each mentoring pair.

Mentoring pairs may also choose to meet out of our Mentoring Café, a designated lounge and shared workspace where our mentoring pairs and/or youth/young women in the community may come to complete their mentoring sessions, access a small library of college and career resources, and use computer stations to complete schoolwork and/or college/job applications. Complimentary beverages and snacks accompany digital and hard copy resources. Our Mentoring Café is located in the Marietta Square business district in Marietta, Georgia.

If meeting in-person at any time, Atlanta GLOW must first verify the license and insurance information of the driver BEFORE the scheduled session is to occur if planning to travel together in the same vehicle.

Program Format

  • 6 One-to-One Mentoring Sessions (1/Month)

  • Each Session Lasts 1 Hour

  • Sessions Held Monthly for 6 Months

  • Sessions Scheduled Individually

  • Transportation Assistance Provided (Upon Request) 

Participants who successfully complete the 6-month program will have the opportunity to earn up to $300 in Earn and Learn program incentives upon program graduation.

Onboarding Process

Upon receipt of a program application, we require applicants to attend a virtual orientation and complete a 30-minute life skills assessment. Both steps are required in order to be admitted to the program.
