Polished Pebbles Girls' Mentoring Program

Polished Pebbles Girls Mentoring Program is a vital solution to this crisis. We provide girls (7-17 years old) with the opportunity of learning the vital life skill of effective communication. Our program instills confidence in girls to face the challenges of daily life by substituting aggressive forms of communicating and problem solving with new strategies that allow them to gain a solid reputation and respect without retaliating. In partnership with local schools, businesses, and over 400 volunteer mentors, we have helped girls exhibit poise, react responsibly as opposed to retaliating, demonstrate assertiveness vs. aggressiveness, identify the difference between class vs. sass, and become polished!773-340-2140 430 East 162nd Street, Unit 364, South Holland, Illinois 60473
