The Modern Mentor program is a series of interactive lectures designed to help girls explore their internal relationship to themselves. Topics are all based on the foundation of self-love. Classes include short written exercises, centering tools to manage stress and time set apart for questions and answers. The goal of the program is to give girls the tools to handle the tribulations of life and help them to be emotionally independent. Modern Mentoring aims for girls to be self-soothing, confident and of service to others.
