1BC: Girls- The first meeting of our all-girls mentoring group was this Thursday!

A small step towards our overall goal was undertaken this past Thursday. Our first all-girls mentoring group had their inaugural meeting! Led by adult female volunteers, this dynamic group will be able to address the holistic needs of urban female youth, a largely ignored group.

On occasion, groups of men will attend the meetings to model positive male behaviors. We call this the “Uncle Project.”

For our first meeting, the girls played a few introductory games, ate pizza, and played in the gym. As we left, the girls each got to take home an awesome gift bag donated by a local women’s Bible study group! They were excited to know that people that didn’t even know them cared deeply for them!

If you want to help with our girls group, please email us at auyd01@gmail.com.
