Young Women & Girlz Reach Out
YWGRO is a group mentorship program that brings girls aged 9-13 and young women mentors aged 16-29 together to participate in fun, creative activities and community outreach. The group will meet twice a month on Tuesday’s after school in Bracebridge running from October 24th until June 5th.

 Research shows that group mentorship has many positive effects for girls including:
Gained Confidence
Finding their Voice
Healthy Relationships & Positive Lifestyle
Sense of Belonging or Connectedness
Increased Community Connections
