Girls and Youth Need Mentorship More Than Ever
What an extraordinary time to be a woman!
Mentorship is valuable in business, and especially for girls. Mentors can connect with youth through their lived experiences in relationships, education, work, and most importantly having someone they can confide it - a process of cultivating trust.
Growing up, did you not want that someone to talk to? Someone that understood the conflicting feelings you had? Someone that can give you some insight because they've been through something similar? Someone that you can have fun with?
All is possible, if we can learn to build trust with each other, which is becoming increasingly harder for girls. With social media bombarding us everywhere, it is a challenge to cultivate healthy relationships; therefore, the need for girl mentorship is needed more than ever.
I want to genuinely thank Big Brother Big Sister of Winnipeg for the opportunity of being a Mentor to Paije, the gift of friendship. We've certainly enjoyed a variety of fun activities, endless girl talks, silly jokes, learning about her culture since our match began in May 8, 2018. I have many happy memories to take with me! - Amy Tung, CEO I Am Love Project
Although our match is officially closed, we are staying connected. The result is a life-changing experience for both the mentor and the mentee. Look for your mentee today!
