Girls Inc. has been awarded a Mentoring Matching Grant of $37,500 from Mass Mentoring Partnership (MMP), a statewide organization fueling the movement to expand empowering youth-adult relationships in Massachusetts. Girls Incorporated of Lynn is one of 32 mentoring programs throughout the Commonwealth to receive a Mentoring Matching Grant.
We are delighted to receive a Mentoring Matching Grant because we know that mentoring is a powerful way to enrich girls lives. Through the mentoring programs, girls are paired with caring, accomplished adults who can motivate, nurture, teach, inspire and show them by example how to be Strong, Smart, and Bold in achieving their potential.
The Mentoring Matching Grant will support the efforts of the Odyssey Middle School mentoring coordinator to research and pilot new curricula that will advance the program objectives of increasing the number of youth served and generating positive outcomes for youth in structured mentoring relationships.
