The YWCA Darien/Norwalk is enrolling Darien High School students in the new Mentoring for Girls program, which pairs a volunteer adult female mentor with a high school girl for twice-monthly sessions throughout the school year.
The program is the first woman-to-girl mentoring program in Darien. Its mission is to help build young women's self-esteem and to realize their full potential as they face the challenges and rewards of high school and beyond. All sessions will take place at the YW's office at 49 Old Kings Highway North on Mondays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Each will offer a theme such as "Setting Goals," "Overcoming Challenges" or "Finding Motivation," and will be overseen by a program coordinator.
The program is supported by the Connecticut Mentoring Partnership, part of the Governor's Prevention Partnership designed to keep the state's youth safe, successful and drug-free. Girls can register at ywcadariennorwalk.org. Email questions to email@example.com.
