Sisters Inspiring Sisters Mentoring Group (SIS Mentoring) is a 501(c)(3) status non-profit organization that provides teenage girls with mentors. Our mentors are college students who organize group discussions, while aiding guest speakers and professional staff with teaching the life skills curriculum. Each group mentoring session is supervised by a female social worker who provides guidance and onsite resources to participants. Mentoring is provided anywhere girls gather i.e. schools, residential facilities, churches, community centers etc.
