Girls in our Polished Pebbles Mentoring Program here in Chicago (www.polishedpebbles.com) build relationships over time during sessions held directly in their own schools or communities that help to positively affect their lives. These relationships are with our staff, community volunteers, volunteers from our partnering businesses, and improved relationships with their school faculty and administration.
An example of just one of the many success stories of Polished Pebbles is Pertesha. After joining Polished Pebbles, Pertesha made many personal improvements that helped change her life from when she was in high school to where she is now.
A Polished Pebbles’ alumna, Pertesha sat down with me to discuss how being in Polished Pebbles and involved in programs such as the Bloomingdale’s Brown Bag Apprenticeship Program impacted her life.
I was so proud of her work and progress I felt like Mr. Miyagi watching over Danielson in the Karate Kid! WATCH THE VIDEO BY CLICKING HERE: Success Story Video.
In the spirit of National Mentoring Month, please share this positive story and let’s see it go viral!
I thank you for loving our girls, and your continued support!
