Did you know that in Maryland…
9,500 students drop out of high school each year.
23% of high school girls were absent from school in 2015.
50% of the students who were suspended or expelled were girls.
Recognizing the detrimental impact of these alarming statistics, we believe that what teen girls need most are mentors. The Girl Talk Mentoring was created to combat the issues teen girls face by empowering them through leadership skills development. We go beyond traditional mentoring efforts to build strong leaders and ignite a movement of compassion and positive change.
We offer girls a safe place where they can talk about their issues, improve their self-esteem and learn the basic skills that are easily transferable to the workplace and everyday life. Girls undertake a process of self-discovery to explore their identities and tell their stories: who they are, what challenges they face and how we can help them.
