We've trained over 200 girls utilizing our Identity curriculum. Helping at- risk girls recognize vulnerabilities in their history, educate them on potential negative consequences of these issues, and give them opportunities to connect with resources. We work collaboratively with juvenile probation/court, detention, foster care agencies, at-risk youth programs and DCS. 52% of the girls we see ask for opportunities to connect with adult mentors to help provide stability and encouragement. Short term data in collaboration with Davidson County Juvenile Court probation has shown that girls who take the Epic girl Identity training are less likely to re-enter the court system.
Empowering girls to reach their full potential
What We strive for
Before girls begin working with their mentors, they join an Epic girl group where they learn about healthy relationships, boundaries, resolving conflict, setting realistic expectations, and other topics to help ensure the get the most out of the mentoring experience.
Our mentoring program uses a dual mentorship model where each girl receives 2 adult mentors who work in partnership to provide stability, consistency and accountability.
