Event description

Description

Space of Her Own (SOHO) Alexandria and Arlington are gearing up to kick off the 2018-2019 school year with a phenomenal class of new mentors. We hope you'll join us for an information session to learn more about our programs, the girls we serve, mentor expectations, and how you can apply to volunteer with SOHO.


Mentors and 5th grade girls meet weekly in a group setting, one evening per week, from 5:30-8:00 p.m., during the initial program school year. Together they enjoy dinner and work on art and carpentry projects like building shelves, constructing and wiring lamps and making self-portraits. They also participate in a series of team-building exercises to help develop the SOHO community and to identify ideal mentor/mentee matches. In the spring, mentors collaborate to give each girl’s bedroom a makeover, using items they have created together. The SOHO Club, for mentors and girls who choose to continue their relationships, provides monthly group activities and services from sixth through eighth grade, helping to build long-term mentoring relationships and ongoing learning opportunities.


Please register for one of the following Mentor Information Sessions:
