Nicky Hendricks-HolmanBy Nicky Hendricks-Holman,
NCBW LI Teen Mentoring Chairman

The purpose of the mentoring program is to support the NCBW, Long Island Chapter organizational goal of collaboration and advocacy. The program is designed as a creative alliance between NCBW and the Lady of Distinction program at Turtle Hook Middle School. The goal is to provide an experience that exposes African American teenage girls to successful people that motivate and empower them to be effective leaders. This program has been developed to enhance political awareness, to prepare them for achievements in the business world, and to help them to develop a sense of advocacy and civic responsibility.

Format: Teen mentoring will be a group mentoring experience.  The 2014-2015 program will consist of monthly group presentations made to the Lady of Distinction.

The monthly sessions will take place at our collaborating Turtle Hook Middle School. The program will take place from October 2014-June 2015.
