PEER & BIG SISTER MENTORING
Building a Better Future
SweetsGirlz empowers youth in the area to reach their fullest potential through a peer mentoring program. We care about our girls, and providing them with a peer or big sister mentor helps to provide the support and guidance for the young girls in order to make good transitions through middle and high school.
Mentoring guarantees a young person that there is someone who cares about them. This is one of a number of enrichment programs to help shape their identity. Learn more about becoming a peer or big sister mentor today.
