be a part of our story

Our 1:1 MENTOR MATCH PROGRAM is for girls ages 5-24 who live in Massachusetts + Connecticut and have experienced the early loss of their mothers. Our Mentors help young girls find their voice and remind them they are not alone in their grief. Our mentor program is specifically tailored to meet you where YOU are and to meet your needs!

Mentors do not replace the role of your mother or minimize the role of your father, stepmother or other family or friends in your life. Instead, empowerHER is designed to empower and support you throughout the year. And, many times Mentors and Mentees attend our EVENTS for GIRLS together - as part of our larger empowerHER community!

Since you are already enrolled at empowerHER, requesting a Mentor is easy!  If you have not yet enrolled, you will simply need to enroll HERE!  Once enrolled, we will schedule an Intake Appointment to learn more!

Our 1:1 MENTOR MATCH PROGRAM is currently offered in Massachusetts + Connecticut only. Rest assured, we are working tirelessly to build sustainable fundraising strategies that will make our programs available to girls in new areas across the country! Click HERE and with your help, we can remind girls in your community they are not alone in their grief. .

empowerHER works closely with the family to make each match and follows best practices in youth mentorship to ensure a safe and most impactful match! Please reach out with any questions or schedule a call today by emailing Mentor Program Coordinator, Joan Quealy, R.N., at
