Mentoring Resources

Having a strong mentoring relationship can make a powerful difference in the success of a young woman in high school or college. Because of this, the Utah Women’s College Task Force recommended that women-focused mentoring program resources be developed to help provide support for influencers (e.g., parents, nonprofit organizations, schools, colleges) to implement  programs around the state. The role of the Utah Women and Education Initiative is to provide resources that will assist campuses, schools, nonprofits, and community groups establish and maintain quality mentoring programs for girls and women. Both formal and informal mentoring opportunities will be highlighted.
