HIGH SCHOOL MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

Slider

One Girl Can helps girls discover their potential and create a path to a brighter future through the high school mentorship program. Students have the opportunity to connect with successful international and local women for guidance.

They participate in regular mentoring activities, workshops and conferences to help them envision their future and take the steps needed to make their dreams a reality. From the day they start secondary school until they finish university and start their careers, we are there to guide, encourage and support them.

EMPOWER ME

This is an introduction to vision and goal setting for our first year students. Girls are encouraged to establish deep-rooted self-confidence and belief in themselves, this starts by having each girl articulate in detail the vison they have for the life they want to live. In the culture these girls grow up in, people rarely ask a girl what she wants to be because their futures have been predetermined for centuries through cultural barriers and poverty.

This workshop is intended to build their esteem, providing them with the tools for self-discovery, and a roadmap for creating change through goal-setting.

I WANT TO BE

The following year, students start exploring their unique talents. They learn how to apply them in order to find meaningful work aligning their strengths, passions and dreams.

Through this workshop, they discover the many career opportunities available. Additionally, they learn more about where their strengths can lead them. By the end of this session, the girls will identify a cluster of careers that reflects their unique personality and preferences.

I WILL BE

Continuing to build on the previous workshops as a foundation, this workshop takes a deeper dive into different career personalities. This helps focus on more specific career paths. We revisit goal-setting and talk about more tangible ways to achieve their career goal.

This session is intended to set them up for their final year in secondary school. The goal is continue to thinking about post-secondary education and continue to hone the skills needed for their path to success.

FORM 4 MENTORSHIP

In the last year of high school, we introduce the girls to strong African female role models who have achieved success in their lives. These inspiring women come from different backgrounds; Many couldn’t afford to send them to university and didn’t have access to scholarships, yet they are successful business women.

The mentors visit the high schools, and provide personal guidance to encourage conversations on the many opportunities available. The goal is to help the students continue their path of learning, development and ensure lifelong success in all their endeavours.

As the girls graduate high school, they also graduate from our mentorship program as they enter into university. All of our scholarship students are offered a 2-day leadership conference during their university years. read more >
