The Young Educated and Sophisticated (Y.E.S) Girls Mentoring Group was established in January 2017. We are dedicated to enhancing the personal, academic, and emotional development of teenage girls from marginalized and underserved communities in Orlando, Florida and surrounding areas. It is through monthly group meetings and individual Mentor-Mentee one-on-one sessions, that we envision a community where all teenage girls are empowered to say YES to enriching opportunities that will benefit them now and in the future.
Our monthly meetings include engaging in discussions about current events that evoke critical thinking, during our Hot Topics Segment. In addition to this segment, each meeting has a set focus which engages the young ladies in self-reflection and character development. Many of our activities are arts based, with the goal of encouraging creativity and self-expression.
