“Abbie's Girls is a mentoring program for girls that focuses on helping them clarify their values as young women while helping them to develop and communicate their vision for their lives. Through bi-weekly dinner and dialogue sessions, girls will explore what it means to be women and the impact they want to have in their community. The program will focus on helping them develop a sense of self-awareness and building healthy conflict resolution skills through intentional reflection and consistent self-regulation. The program also teaches servant leadership empowering participants to rewrite their narratives from a position of power and service.”
