COMMUNITY • MENTORSHIP • SUCCESS
Who We Are
HighlightHER Outreach aims to provide mentorship through the use of community to high school girls based in Henry County, Georgia. HighlightHER Outreach Program was founded in 2018 by our four co-founders, Olivia, Mercedes, Jeanine, and Sherifa. As teenage girls, the co-founders never had mentors close to their age range, something that is crucial during the transition to adulthood. Teenage girls are an underserved community and HighlightHER utilizes community and mentorship to highlight their success, improve their potential, and encourage their spirit to shine.
We believe young ladies biggest development can come from their involvement giving back to their own community. HighlightHER highlights girls by helping them acknowledge the power they have to change their life and community.
COLLEGE PREP SUPPORT
Having support during the college enrollment process is the difference between attending or not attending college for many young girls. HighlightHER steps in as a support for girls continuing their education. We intentionally select mentors under the age of 26 so girls will have mentors that are relatable and able to relay information from their recent experience.
MENTAL HEALTH CHECK-INS
Our ladies and girls stay connected through “Topic Tuesday”, a weekly check-in on the given topic of the week. This open discussion is an opportunity to address relevant issues and connect more deeply in our sisterhood.
We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.
