2017-2018 Mentoring Program
Registration is now OPEN for the 2017-2018 Cupcakes & Conversation Mentoring program. The mentors act as "big sisters" providing an additional layer of support to the teen's current support structure. The nine-month program is full of interactive sessions and "sister circle" discussions on self-esteem, beauty & body image, interacting with boys & self-respect, finances, nutrition & health, career/future, and much more. Each session also includes a creativity component where teens will learn to express themselves artistically through crafting, painting, sewing, African dance, yoga and more. The sessions are twice monthly on Saturdays beginning in October and ending in June 2018. (See below for schedule). Registration will remain open until all slots are full. All dates highlighted in purple are the dates when Cupcakes & Conversation sessions will be held. Every session is from 10:00 AM until 1:00 PM at the Petersburg Public Library, 2nd Floor Wellness Room (except for outings).
