Do you have what it takes to be a true role model?
November 2, 2016
Girlfriends’ sponsor Ms. Joe has been a sponsor of Girlfriends for 4-5 years and was apart of the original organization that consisted of only 10 students.
The goal of the program is to shape its members into hard-working and influential young women . Northeast high school has the largest inductee pool at a whopping number of 61 girls. Mr. Hendrick is a strong supporter of the club and plays a huge role in its success and large Involvement rate. Ms. Joe says “You have to hear everything the girls say in order to succeed with the girlfriends program.” Ms. Joe wants to be involved in getting rid of the gap between young women no matter the race or age.
Benefits of involvement:
- Sister support if a single child
- Increase of self-esteem
- Respect and how to dress professionally
5,000 Role Models also kicked off their 2016-2017 year of volunteering and mentoring at morning initiation with sponsor Dr.Hester.
