Event description
Celebrate the Care to Lead Mentoring Program launch with a fabulous brunch bridging girlhood with womanhood.

About this Event

Care to Lead is dedicated to the improving the lives of young teenage women of color in Brownsville through empowerment activities, mentorship, and sisterhood circles to support their academic and socio-emotional development as young women.

Care to Lead was spawned out of my love for mentorship and the deep need of the girls in my community to be surrounded by women who can elevate them with affirmations, consolation, and encouragement. Studies have shown how young people benefit from consistent mentorship. Some findings include:

++Girls with a mentor are two and half times more likely to be confident in their academic performance. (Stand-together.org)

++A mentor increases a student’s likelihood of attending college by 50 percent. (Stand-together.org)

++Youth in a mentor program are 46 percent less likely to use drugs and 27 percent less likely to use alcohol. (Stand-together.org)

That is merely the tip of the iceberg as statistics for young women of color are far more disparate. All of these reasons serve as fuel to launch Care to Lead to continue to support the young women of Brownsville by creating a network of continual support that can see them through the accomplishment of their personal and career goals.

New Beginnings empowerment brunch are for girls, mothers, sisters, aunts that allow for women to come together, dress beautifully, talk, feel, grow, eat great food, and dance while honoring one another and ourselves. I aim to have you all leaving feeling full and ever more connected.

With all my gratitude,

Cristy Gonzalez

Care to Lead Founder.
