Doing What’s Needed
Journaling, story telling, non fiction writing, research writing, photography, videos, websites - we explore and develop all forms of writing and digital media. Through weekly one-to-one mentoring, women are sharing their craft and empowering girls to find their voice and tell their story. Each month a professional speaker from a focus area visits Writeous Girls, Inc. and shares their experiences and expertise within their field. By doing this, we hope to ignite a passion within the creative minds of young girls and immerse them in a community that is working with them to help them achieve their goals.
Tackling the Issue
The most crucial part of our program is the mentee-mentor relationship. We inspire middle and high school girls to be confident and creative writers through peer-to-peer mentoring. Each young woman is matched with a collegiate woman to to build a relationship that will enable them to express themselves through writing, photography, and/or digital media. Mentees are welcomed into a diverse community of females that will work closely with them to navigate their scholastic and personal goals.
