Get involved, and help light that spark in the girls we work with!


Horizons4Girls works to help young women discover, in a safe setting, the options they have as they travel through life. Horizons provides a listening ear while working to stop at-risk behaviors. Horizons, while working with family, teachers, social workers and others, works to surround the student with a supportive and safe setting to fully develop necessary life skills as they continue into their adulthood.

In both group and individual settings young women are offered mentoring, study skills / techniques. As family life, peer pressure, and educational expectations become more of a challenge for young women, they are often looking for personalized assistance with their studies and life decisions. The opportunity to explore ever changing career options is made available as part of what Horizons4Girls does. Giving the young women a variety of speakers, presenters and potential role models we help them to develop their own personal goals.


Faith is inspired by your desire to get involved with H4G!


Mentors understand the need to assume a number of different roles during the course of a mentoring relationship, but successful mentors share the same basic qualities.

  • A sincere desire to be involved with a young person

  • Respect for young people

  • Active listener

  • Empathy

  • See solutions and opportunities

  • Be flexible and open

  • Can commit to a minimum of twice monthly, for 4 hours each time, after school hours

Each student is "at promise", not at risk... and we inspire their internal promise to fulfill their academic and personal goals.
