Mentor at MGC

As set forth in our Mission Statement, the Chorus pursues a dual mission, focusing on musical excellence and the development of confident young women. Girls begin to lose their dreams very early. It is not enough to encourage young women to dream big. They must be provided the guidance, resources and a community of support to realize those dreams. The “sisterhood” that develops among the members is a very strong bond, and is a key element of the “community”. In addition, we seek role models for these young women who can provide advice, perspective, and wisdom in a variety of ways, from group presentations to the girls to individual guidance for girls who seek additional support.

It is the responsibility of all of us to understand the journey of young women and work with them in the ways we are able, giving them the support they need to develop the confidence and skills to find their own voice.

Recent examples of events include Roundtable Discussion with Professional Women and Stress and Self-Esteem with Dr. Malynn Utzinger-Wheeler.

We are building a network of mentors with a variety of experience and perspectives. If you would like to learn more about the organization and how you might be able to assist, please let us know. In addition, we would welcome your ideas on ways to build community and advance our mission.
