dc.description.abstract This project focuses on developing a mentoring program. The Big Sis Lil Sis mentor program connects underprivileged girls at Empire Elementary School in Empire, CA with college students, the young women of Phi Lambda Rho Sorority Inc. from California State University, Stanislaus. The objectives of this project were accomplished by gaining participation and support for the project, implementing the design and structure, and facilitating the implementation of the mentorship program. The mentor program consists of meetings once a month for three months during an academic semester. A total of 8 mentors (from the sorority) serve as ‘big sisters.’ A total of 36 young girls (‘little sisters’) participated in the program at the first meeting, 39 at the second, and 32 at the third. Feedback of all participants at the conclusion of the project speaks to how well-received the program is, and to the desire to continue it past the academic semester. As there was no existing mentor program at Empire Elementary School, this project creates a unique supportive empowering connection between mentors and mentees and the mentees (little sisters) look forward to each meeting. The little sisters requested continuation of the program and it is hoped the project will continue in the next academic year. en_US
