ignite the spark
Horizons for Girls
In 2000, our founder Char wanted to make a difference. She had faced serious challenges as a teenager, but had a strong support system to get her through. After some serious discussions, research, and interviewing community leaders, Horizons for Girls (H4G) was born.
Resources such as United Way of Sheboygan County, Search Institute, Mentoring.org, Lakeland University, Health and Human Services, and area school districts helped H4G create policies and procedures, as well as a program to train and certify mentors that would donate their time to serve at-risk middle and high school female students.
Our mission is to ignite that internal spark that empowers students to accomplish their goals. We are proud to say that 100% of students that stay engaged in the program graduate high school, with many going on to secondary education.
Each student is at promise, not at risk... and our goal is to ignite that internal promise.
Make a difference by creating your own spark with a donation!
