DATA-DRIVEN MENTORING PERSONALIZED FOR YOU

Know Your Worth

Our signature individualized group mentoring program aimed to help girls and young women between 11-17 years old build a strong foundation of mental, emotional, and physical well-being that will set them up for success as students, community members, and leaders.

What She’ll Do

Know Your Worth incorporates biweekly in-person workshops, volunteer opportunities, group field trips and outings, and small, in-person and online community fundraising events.

Workshops

Our data-driven curriculum centers around the guiding principles of self-value recognition, self-representation, verbal encouragement, observation, mastery experiences, and emotional state interpretation. Workshop topics provide practical training and accessible lessons in subject areas like communication; personal appearance and physical health; goal setting and execution.

Volunteering

Members volunteer with a wide variety of organizations in the local area to give in return to their communities. Opportunities are usually hands-on experiences where girls will engage with community members to work toward a larger goal that directly impacts people within the community.

Fundraisers

Members are provided the opportunity to gain workforce development skills through hands-on work experience. During fundraisers, members will assume various roles and responsibilities where they can learn and demonstrate workplace values that may include but are not limited to responsibility, communication, accountability, decison-making, and integrity.

Outings

Members engage in exclusive leisure events to help foster connection and relationships among peers and mentors. These outings provide experiences that build character and create long lasting memories.

What She’ll Gain

Increased self-worth

Girls instantly possess intrisic value when they are born that does not need to be earned. She’ll learn to recognize her worth independent from any other factors.

Exposure to productive influences

Girls are more likely to imitate people whom they perceive similar to themselves. Our program provides an environment where she can emulate the behaviors of people with high self-efficacy.

New + enhanced skills

Mastery experience is the most influential source of efficacy information. Our program provides opportunities for her to master experiences so that she can witness authentic evidence for herself of whether she can muster what it takes to succeed in various tasks.

Social support + integration

Having a strong support system is vital to any personal growth. It is especially signifiant for girls embarking on the journey to reweriting the negative naratives about themselves. She’ll receive a strong support system of peers and mentors who’ve been trained to be supportive.

Courage to be authentic

Self-expression has an effect on how we feel about ourselves and how we’re perceived by others. She’ll learn how to express herself authentically so that she can be empowered to show up as who she truly is and go after what she truly wants instead of being and doing what other people want for her.

Emotional intelligence

The emotional or physiological state that someone experiences can negatively influence their judgment toward their abilities to achieve their goals. Our program coaches her to control her emotional states when evaluating her abilities to achieve her goals so that she is skilled in practicing self-reflection and examining the meaning of her internal thoughts.

Parent Testimonial

“Girls Like Me….Excellent organization. 2 years ago I was in search of a group my daughter would feel comfortable with girls of her age group. My daughter joined the group and we started seeing positive changes within her self-esteem, self-love, community involvement and Huge change in her attitude and how she responds to situations that may arise. The lead mentor Ms. Deja takes the time to get to know each girl and holds them accountable for what they learn. The monthly sessions range from teaching them etiquette to making sure they are focused on their education and always includes good times. She will definitely be a part of the group many more years.”
