Greensboro, NC — Mentoring is a conscious choice to dedicate time, energy and effort to help another; and, the ability to turnkey that mentoring into mentorship for others in need is life-changing. The Save A Girl… Save A World program does just that. The fourth annual Save A Girl… Save A World is a reciprocal mentorship program retreat where college-aged students mentor high school students, who in turn are mentored by professional women. This life-changing experience titled: “Building Bridges & Learning Together” will take place Nov. 7-8 at the Bennett College Global Learning Center, in Greensboro, North Carolina. The event is sponsored by Ford Motor Company Fund.

The two-day weekend will consist of a group of female leaders (from various professions) from across the U.S. who will serve as one-on-one mentors to 50 young, female students participating in this program. The students are from Bennett College and The Early/Middle College, the only all female high school in North Carolina which is housed on the campus of Bennett College. Alternately, collegiate students who are mentors will also take advantage of the opportunity for mentorship from the professional women available during the retreat.

Mentors commit to assist student mentees with the following: tutoring, academic assistance, college readiness and career preparation in addition to serving as role models. “Each year we are affirmed by the work this reciprocal, mentorship program developed through the transformation we are blessed to see from the students we seek to mentor,” says Glenda Gill, founder, Save A Girl… Save A World. “We focus on four pillars: Wealth, Life Skills, Careers and Health & Wellness. Our mission is to provide educational opportunities coupled with insight gleaned from the successful life experiences from women in various generations because we know it makes a huge impact.”

Numerous professional women mentors from across the U.S. will participate along with the following keynote speakers, some including:

* Gail Perry-Mason, financial guru, is a native Detroiter and national best-selling author, “Money Matter for Families,” and “Girl, Make Your Money Grow.” She is Senior Director of Investments for Oppenheimer & Co., Inc. Perry-Mason founded the “Money Camp for Teens” which has instructed over 6,000 young people on financial literacy throughout the U.S.

* Meshelle Forman Shields known as “The Indie-Mom of Comedy” has appeared on “Nickelodeon’s Search for the Funniest Mom in America 3; and Martin Lawrence Presents: “1st Amendment Stand Up.” Meshelle pioneered the role of “Michelle” (portrayed by Kimberly Elise in the film adaptation “Woman Thou Art Loosed” written by TD Jakes and Terry McFadden.

“The Save A Girl, Save A World retreat is an incredible opportunity for young ladies to take advantage of and learn from successful women and utilize that information to help inspire them to pursue their dreams,” says Pamela Alexander, director of Community Development and Fund Operations, Ford Motor Company Fund. “Alternately, for the mentors, this program serves as a wonderful opportunity to encourage, educate and affirm these young ladies who desire to become future leaders, but may need a lift. We are proud to sponsor an event that helps to fulfill the dreams of women.”

The weekend retreat will kick-off at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 7, at the Bennett College Global Learning Center with Opening Remarks from Save A Girl… Save A World Founder Glenda Gill, along with a reception and Round Table Discussion about mentorship, where students and mentors will discuss how they envision their future on paper.
