Mentorship Program Name Change
Updated: Sep 17, 2021
Here at EWAAB we believe all young women and non-binary individuals deserve the tools and support to break through professional barriers, so we created a year-long mentorship program to do just that. This program is designed to connect students with peers, mentors & working professionals, provide students with professional & leadership tools as well as opportunities to use them in practice, and encourage them to step out of their comfort zone to find and seize their own opportunities.
In an effort to better reflect our core values (to encourage, provide and connect), the overarching goals of the program and the students we aim to serve, we have chosen to rename the Encourage Her program. As of Fall 2021, both our university and new community college level mentorship programs will be called Bridge. This mentorship program will not only work to build a bridge between students and their future professional field, it will also give students the tools, experience and encouragement they need to cross it.
Opportunity to build, confidence to cross.
We are excited to begin our Primary Mentor recruitment process for the 2021-2022 Bridge program and look forward to continuing to make an impact in the lives of young students.
"A mentor is like a bridge because they can help us connect our life experiences." - Laetitia Fokou, program participant (19-20) and Primary Mentor (20-21)
