Our purpose in mentoring is to empower young girls and teens through relationship development, life skills, time-management, health, personal hygiene, independence, self-sufficiency, goal setting, and planning for their future. We are committed to helping to build self-confidence and increase educational awareness. VSTAR also strives to promote and enhance leadership and conflict-resolution skills through illustration and role play.Professional women are selected and specially trained as VSTAR Mentors to later be paired with a young woman who is either attempting to follow in a similar career path or has demonstrated a need to have a meaningful relationship with someone to build personal character. We provide mentors who take pride in themselves as well as the female youth that have demonstrated an interest to serve. This is an opportunity for mentors to share their own personal experiences as well as advise the participants of obstacles they may face all while giving them the possible tools needed to be successful on their journey.
