YWCA Girl2Girl is a group mentoring session that connects elementary and middle school age girls with high school age girls that demonstrate role model characteristics.  Girl2Girl allows girls to make new friends and build strong lasting relationships. With these relationships, they will have a friend to talk to and share life experiences with. 

Mentors will help guide mentees through any experiences that may arise during adolescents. Through regular contact between mentor and mentee a relationship is developed that is built on trust, understanding and respect. All relationships are supported by the staff of the GirlSpace Program.

Pre-Registration is REQUIRED
Registration forms for both mentees and mentors are at the bottom of this page.
