Looking for volunteer mentors for art-based mentoring program

Are you interested in serving as a mentor for the 2009-2010 Space Of Her Own (SOHO) program? SOHO serves at-risk 5th grade girls from Alexandria. SOHO is an art-based mentoring program in which volunteer mentors are paired each paired with a SOHO girl. Together, girls and mentors meet weekly to learn life skills, eat a healthful dinner, and do art lessons, culminating with a "Trading Spaces"-style room renovation at the end! This is a year-long program, and mentors must commit to a full year, attending every Thursday night from October through June.

We will be holding a meeting for prospective mentors on Thursday, August 27th at 5:30 p.m. If you are interested in serving as a mentor, e-mail Kate at kateg@theartleague.org and she can provide you with more information on the program and upcoming mentor recruitment and orientation meeting. RSVPS REQUIRED TO ATTEND.
