For the month of July we want to delve into Polished Pebbles Girls Mentoring Program. Many of you know that we work with girls ages 7 to 17 to prepare them for a future of success. We encourage our girls to build positive relationships and develop professional skills. Polished Pebbles does this through three pillars: Communication, Career Development, and Community. Each week we are going to highlight how Polished Pebbles uses these pillars to prepare our young women for their future careers.
Here is a description of the Communication pillar from the Polished Pebbles website:
COMMUNICATION – Our focus is mentoring girls to become strong, effective communicators in all aspects, including interpersonal communication and communicating respectfully with adults and peers.
➢ 21st Century Skill Building Blocks Addressed: Verbal Communication, Social Awareness, Problem Solving, Collaboration, Planning for Success
