FGS is seeking committed young female professionals or college students interested in learning from confident women who are ready to empower the next generation of leaders. Our mentors provide guidance to young women by helping them set life, academic as well as career goals, and will work with mentees to achieve them!
What We're Looking For:
The ideal mentee candidate is a young woman seeking to develop an ongoing relationship with a more experienced female leader who will support her emotional, professional, and academic growth. An FGS mentee is innovative, aspirational, and revolutionary—she is a teacher, a student, and a visionary who is ready to challenge and be challenged in order to grow and enact positive change in the world around her. Most importantly, she is committed to the mentoring process!
The Fairy Godsister, Inc. (FGS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting high-potential, economically disadvantaged women and girls through the developmentally crucial ages of 16-24. We offer a unique mentoring program that seeks to build organic sisterly relationships between accomplished female professionals and promising young women whose circumstances have denied them the opportunity to realize the full extent of their capabilities. By pairing them with older women who have demonstrated significant success in their field, we empower our mentees to develop leadership skills, attain academic success, grow both personally and emotionally, and ultimately fulfill their long-term professional and personal goals.
