Get Real Mentoring
Funded by the State of Florida, Get Real is currently offered in eight middle schools, six of which are in Miami-Dade County and two are in Monroe County. Get Real targets low-income, at-risk middle school girls who are referred to the program by counselors and teachers. It addresses the literacy gap with reading programs and also aims to develop character and self-esteem. Girls participate in a character-building course called Girls Circle that strengthens decision-making skills and reduces risk-taking behavior.
Volunteers are needed to serve as mentors in the participating middle schools. If you or someone you know would like to be considered, or if you have questions, please contact Lori Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org or 305-253-4841 x 223.
