What is MentHER?

MentHER is a “pay-it-forward” program which combines networking and mentorship among women of various age groups to support the growth, education and empowerment of college women and high school girls in the Baltimore area.

Women in industry network with one another and mentor college students, who in turn mentor Baltimore City high school students. The college and high school participants take part in workshops and are exposed to a variety of industries to help them establish goals and consider future careers. Research has shown that cross-age peer mentoring leads to a multitude of benefits for participants.MentHER emphasizes empowering women to learn, grow and help the community.

Program content focuses on financial and career planning as well as life and workplace skills.

Guided discussions on issues facing women are addressed throughout the program in the one-on-one mentoring sessions, as well as in the workshops and presentations.
