Our 1:1 MENTOR MATCH PROGRAM is for girls ages 5-23. empowerHER mentors support the growth and empowerment of each young girl, instilling hope + optimism and building confidence. Our mentors help young girls find their voice and help them to see this beautiful life still at their fingertips.
WHAT IS A GIRL LOOKING FOR IN A MATCH?
In our experience, the girl and her family have requested a mentor in their mid-twenties to around age fifty who have also lost their mother in childhood or early adulthood. Every step of the way, empowerHER is dedicated to making a successful and powerful match that will help the girl see that motherloss is “survivable” and her mentor can relate to her loss. If you fit this criteria, please apply today; we will review and interview qualifying applicants. Please keep in mind that sometimes the mentor candidate may not be right for our program, and we will let you know if this is specific to your application. Perhaps you would still like to be involved in other ways - like hosting a fundraiser in your community.
WHY CAN’T YOU MATCH ME TODAY?
At times, we are waiting for the right girl to ask for a mentor, and if you are a good candidate, will put you on our waitlist. We encourage you to find other ways to support empowerHER! Maybe there are other ways you would like to donate 5 hours a month to empowerHER until you are matched. Put your passion to work and contact Kristan Povona, our Volunteer coordinator to find a role that matters!
IMPORTANT APPLICATION DETAILS: Please note that our next round of Mentor Application Screenings will take place in the Winter of 2019 for CT + MA (as of this time NY is EVENTS for GIRLS only). At that time, applicants who meet the mentorship requirements will be contacted to schedule an in-person interview with our Mentor Program Coordinator, Joanie Quealy, RN. You may complete the Mentor Application at any time by using the button at the bottom of this page. Prior to consideration, it is important that the application is completed in full including the last six digits of your social security number (XX-XXXX) and a copy of your drivers license, your car insurance (coverage page) and your driving record, are scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT OUR 1:1 MENTOR MATCH PROGRAM?
WHY I MENTOR: “It’s a way of sharing my own life experience of losing my mother when I was a child. I hope my story will inspire a young girl to realize that in spite of these circumstances, she can leverage it and accomplish or become anything she wants...that it will not define her but will give her the strength and resilience necessary for a fulfilling life. But like anything in life, it is an evolution – and to see what’s on the other side can be the motivation and encouragement needed in the beginning”. -eH Mentor
