The Girls' Network

The Girls’ Network aims to inspire and empower girls aged 14-19 from the least advantaged communities by connecting them to a mentor and a network of professional role models who are women. They believe that no girl’s future should be limited by her background, gender or parental income. They reach girls via relationships with schools in London, Sussex, Portsmouth, the West Midlands, Greater Manchester, the North East, Tees Valley and Merseyside, and support over 1000 girls each year.

Volunteer mentors are trained by The Girls’ Network and meet their mentees at least once a month for a year. Mentoring is a journey, helping mentees get from where they are to where they want to be. The programme includes 1-1 mentoring, career and skills-based workshops, work experience, and the at the end of the mentoring journey, mentees become ambassadors of The Girls’ Network. This is a free, lifelong membership enabling them to continue accessing support and opportunities, and offering them a platform to have their voice heard.

Mentors help girls to grow in confidence, access opportunities, and realise their future ambitions. Alongside this, teachers reported better attendance and engagement at school, and frequently improved academic performance too.
