What Is Polished Pebbles?
Polished Pebbles is a Chicago-based, nonprofit organization that I founded back in 2009, and provides me with a lot of the insight, experiences, and food for thought for this blog. The Polished Pebbles program mentors girls ages 7-17 on the effective life skill of communication.We have worked with over 300+ volunteer mentors who help approx. 700 girls via 21 program sites to solve their problems rationally as opposed to retaliating and develop the confidence to:
- Speak up in class,
- Join groups and seek leadership positions
- Communicate effectively and respectfully with adults,
- Have peaceful interactions with their peers
- Prepare for future careers
