Do you have someone who is there to listen to you, to be there for you? Someone who can be your advocate? Did you have “a person” when you were in middle school?
The goal of Seattle Girls’ School’s (SGS) Mentor Program is to make its students strong from the inside out by building a village around each girl during a time when many young people search for role models outside of their immediate family.
SGS (2706 S. Jackson St.) is recruiting a diverse group of female mentors to match with its incoming students. Mentors from any race, religion, sexual orientation and national or ethnic origin are welcome.
Mentors are needed to make a commitment to see their mentee twice a month from November to June. It can include going to school for lunch, attending a class culmination or bringing your mentee to work.
SGS organizes and hosts activities once a month for all involved in the program, like climbing, painting and volunteering.
