Girls Group Mentoring Program

The YWCA Girls Group Mentoring Program pairs UC Berkeley students with Willard Middle School girls to play games, make crafts and other activities while discussing various social issues.

This semester they will be discussing:

  • Family/cultural differences
  • Consent/boundaries with people
  • Bullying (to be a bully and to be bullied)
  • Race
  • Body image
  • Menstrual health
  • Women in media
  • STEM

Take a look at what our mentors had to say about their experiences in the program:

What was your favorite part of Girls Group this fall?

They showed me to love myself
I love that I was able to connect to other girls and cases of what happened to to others
Talking about serious things that we wanted to get off our chests
To get to know the other people and also encourage the power of women
All the art projects got me into doing art all the time with my mom and sister
