Young Women’s Mentorship program paired 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students at Taft Elementary School and Boardman Center Middle School with women mentors from various professional backgrounds. During the 2019-2020 school year, 43 mentees and 42 mentors took part in the program. The girls connect with positive female role models, address social and emotional issues relevant to adolescent girls, and focus on academic success and leadership.
HOW TO VOLUNTEER
This program takes place once a week for one hour during the school day. It is currently occurring virtually at Boardman Center Intermediate and Youngstown Taft Elementary.
To be a mentor, we ask that you commit yourself to spend a weekly session with your mentee at their school. The hour is planned programming either by a United Way Staff person, School Staff person, outside enrichment partner, or the mentors. You are invited to take part in field trips with the students related to the program. You are asked to pass a background test, which is paid for by the United Way.
