Mission of the Let Her Rise Program
The Let Her Rise Program is a spiritually-led mentoring program dedicated to young women who are graduating seniors in high school and plan to attend a two or four year college or university in Louisiana. Participants will engage in an six-week virtual program that will focus on college readiness, how to achieve and maintain academic success, and maintaining a social and spiritual life while in school.
Purpose of the Let Her Rise Program
The program is designed to allow students to connect with others with the expectation to engage further outside of the learning environment with an assigned mentor. Participants will meet higher education professionals, psychologists and mental health professionals, and learn from current college students across the state who will also share their experiences.
In a seven-week virtual format, participants will connect and engage with educational, spiritual and motivational leaders during their time in the program. With only meeting once per week, homework assignments are assigned along with weekly check-ins from peers and assigned mentors.
