Rooted in Empowerment, Effective Environment, & Positive Relationships

Girls Group builds lasting relationships with the young women we serve. We meet them in the 6th grade and guide them through middle school, high school, college, and career.

Girls Group provides an array of services, including academic support, mentoring, career guidance, and job readiness experiences (career exposure, job shadowing, and networking opportunities). Girls Group offers participants the tools necessary to become self sufficient—along with the long-term support to nurture that success for future growth!

Girls Group Currently Serves Over 700 Participants in Washtenaw County

  • Weekly programs at 20 sites within the public schools during the school year
  • Eight weeks of summer enrichment (weekly discussion groups, college and career exploration, and field trips)
  • College & Career Prep (one-on-one mentoring and workshops to promote readiness)
  • One-on-one mentoring and peer support for young women on their college and career journeys
  • NEW Family Engagement program—to further strengthen our relationship with parents and guardians in support of their child’s middle school, high school, college, and career journeys
