G.L.O.W. is a mentoring program for your ladies ages 5-18. Through our '5 Elements to Success' program, we hope to assist our young ladies into strong, independent, and confident women. Below is a brief introduction to our program.
Each mentee will be taught to value the acquisition of knowledge in ANY endeavor. G.L.O.W. will provide informative courses on a variety of subjects designed to enhance each mentees natural gifts and talents as well as inspire their creativity.
2. PHYSICAL/MENTAL/SPIRITUAL HEALTH
As part of our holistic approach to developing healthy young women, G.L.O.W. will engage our mentees in physical and cognitive exercises. Our physical activities will include sports, yoga, and other exercises designed to build muscle and promote growth. Our cognitive activities will include tutoring in traditional courses as well as engaging conversations on spirituality.
3. PARENTAL SUPPORT
G.L.O.W. is an extension of each mentees natural family. We understand the importance of a healthy family relationship and will encourage and support family bonds.
4. LIFE SKILLS
"Where school ends, Life skills begin." G.L.O.W. recognizes the fact that school doesn't always prepare our young ladies to face life on life's terms, so we stand in the gaps. Our young mentees will be taught everything from proper hygiene to how to carry yourself on dates and every other life lessons learned by our mentors. Our goal is to pass on the wisdom, born of experiences from our mentors to each mentee so they do not have to repeat the mistakes of our families and mentors.
5. COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
Each mentee will be required to volunteer in their respective communities. Our volunteer program is deigned to allow our young ladies to help others as well as experience the rewards of contributing to their own community.
