Peer Support & Mentorship
Peer Mentorship and Support Groups
A key component of the program are the Peer Mentor and Support Groups. At the Summit, you will meet the young women who are part of your group. You will be placed into a group based on the criteria you identify–your interests or region. At the Summit, the PMS Groups will have time to connect with one another every day, set group agreements, and plan activities once you are back in your community.
Recognizing that everyone is an expert, or has a range of experience and can support their peers through similar experiences or milestones. Each group will set their own agendas and goals. YWCA will host an orientation that will include discussions on the role and responsibilities of mentors, confidentiality, and supporting one another without judgment.
