Shirley Chisholm Education Foundation Mentoring Program

Change the World one Woman at a Time! 
The Shirley Chisholm Education Foundation provides a safe inspiring online home for young women to rise above their situations and create long-lasting success. We need encouraging and committed female role models like YOU to help us give support and advice to young women who need it most.

Our volunteer mentors positively influence young women in their overall growth and development and boost their self-confidence while preparing them to become leaders in their families, communities, and countries.
You can play an integral role in inspiring young women to improve themselves and become change agents. Support our fight for women to achieve their fullest potential. Visit us at Become a mentor now!

Program Expectations of the Mentor:
SCEF Virtual Mentoring Program envisions a community in which every young woman experiences nurturing one-to-one relationships and community support, which in turn allows each of them to develop into their full potential, capable of making informed, responsible decisions as involved members of the community. SCEF envisions a world where women overcome their barriers to experience lifelong personal, academic, and professional success. The mentoring program uses adult women volunteers (over 30 years old) to commit to supporting, guiding, and being a friend to a young person for a period of at least one year. By becoming part of the social network of adults and community members who care about young adults, the mentor can help youth develop and reach positive academic, career, and personal goals.
