Established in 2018 as the sister organization to Boys to Men Mentoring Network of Virginia, Girls2Women (G2W) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides group mentoring to teenaged girls.
Our passion is mentorship. Everything we do is to create a space of empathy, connection, comfort, and non-judgement that encourages growth in our mentors. G2W does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, heritage, gender, sexual orientation, religious or political affiliation, or disability.
Incorporated virtual format
G2W has three main components: group mentoring, community service, and recreational events. Click through the tabs below to learn about each component.
Our mentoring circles meet weekly from October to May during the school day.
Our circles are located in several middle schools within Chesterfield County, including Academy 360, Bailey Bridge, Midlothian, Swift Creek, Tomahawk Creek, Colonial Heights, and NB Clements Jr. These circles occur once a week during the school day, usually lasting 50 minutes.
Our Community circle is open to high school girls from any high school, meeting weekly for one hour. Typically, these circles are held in a community space like a public library.
Circles are comprised of 8-10 girls with at least 2 mentors present at all times.
We talk about topics related to the transition from girlhood to womanhood: body image, self-love, healthy relationships, mindfulness, empowerment and so much more. We also structure in days where we play games and connect with one another.
Our curriculum follows the PIES format - Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, and Social/Spiritual. Click here to learn more about our PIES format.
