We thank you for your gifts of TIME, TALENTS, or TREASURES to mentor our youth, the impact will be great! Please donate to the 'Mentoring Effect' that is evident in the girls that are being mentored by a caring adult mentor. Help us continue the impact of empowering, and encouraging them to make the right choices about academics, behavior, and their lives after high school. Your donation of $25 will help with S.T.E.A.M. workshops, $50 will pay for field trips and cultural events and $100 will provide training and recruitment of new volunteers.

Dorothy's Girls Scholarship Fund by Girls with Goals Alliance was launched in March to support participating mentees that pursue higher education after graduating from high school. The scholarship fund also assists with fees for mentees that attend STEM camps. The inaugural awards reception was held in August at the beautiful 1st Lady of Suffolk Banquet Facility. Two graduates, Kori and Halimat were awarded certificates of completion for 'Passport to Success' goal-setting project and $500 for college assistance. Awards were given to mentees that attended summer camp and certificates for their participation in the 'Passport to Success' 2018-2019 school term. Congratulations to all recipients.
Spending one hour each week – whether it’s helping with homework, playing games or just hanging out – means a young person has someone to turn to in moments big and small.
The report found that young people who were at risk for not completing high school but who had a mentor reported higher educational aspirations and matriculation into post-secondary education, as well as greater engagement in positive activities.
Why? Because Mentoring Works!!!
Take Action, Make a Change...Mentor a Child!
