Alternatives For Girls is always actively seeking motivated mentors, who are ready to make an impact and fully embrace the girls and young women we serve. Mentoring relationships are a shared opportunity for learning and growth.
AFG aims to match all of its Asset Building program participants with a mentor. Asset Building is a program within the Prevention Program, and it helps girls and young women find self-esteem, improve grade-point average, reject drugs and alcohol, pregnancy prevention, and discover untapped talents. These are some of the experiences girls have as they build their character on a foundation of positive choices.
