About the Kimberly K. Gallow Foundation’s Let Her Rise Program: Program Founder, Kimberly K. Gallow, launched Let Her Rise in May 2020 through her Kimberly K. Gallow (KKG) Foundation with one of her core missions in mind: Believing and supporting our youth, the KKG Foundation aims to inform, influence, and inspire individuals through educational programming and mentoring. 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 eight-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. 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.
