BECOME A MENTOR

All EmpowHer Girls enrolled in our Girls Academy or Leaders Academy are assigned a mentor. Mentorship takes place in a group setting for our middle schoolers and one-on-one for our high schoolers. Mentors are accomplished professionals from various fields, including business, education, technology, the arts, and civic sectors. Because many of our girls don’t know what’s possible until they see it for themselves, our mentors are an integral part of the programs we offer.

Mentoring can take place in our partnering schools during the day and in our community program on Saturdays. The time commitment is minimal, amounting to approximately 1-2 hours a month.

HOST A FIELD TRIP/JOB SHADOWING

EmpowHer believes that “if our girls can see it, they can be it.” To this end, field trips and job shadowing are important to our girls’ learning journey.

While we have a robust group of partners, we’re always looking for more opportunities for our girls. To partner with us, please consider scheduling a job shadowing field trip.

HOST A SUMMER INTERN

Paid internships offer a unique opportunity for girls to learn about careers through observation and hands-on experience. It also helps them to develop soft and hard skills and gain real-world work experience from women in various professional fields.

EmpowHer seeks to partner with companies to provide four-week, paid internship opportunities for our girls. These opportunities must meet EmpowHer Intern Program objectives, but can be tailored to fit each company.

Become a Host

BE A GUEST SPEAKER

Want to partner with the EmpowHer Institute to inspire the next generation of girls to succeed, but can’t commit to being a mentor? Considering being a guest speaker.
