Mentoring Initiative

The Florida Commission on the Status of Women is dedicated to empowering women in achieving their fullest potential, to eliminating barriers to that achievement and to recognizing women's accomplishments. By supporting the growth and empowerment of women and girls, we raise the quality of life for everyone, because when women lead, they not only lead businesses, they lead in their community, they fight for their families, and they impact issues important to the future of our state.

Studies show that in the United States, young people with mentors are less likely to use drugs and alcohol, earned better grades, and had higher goals and expectations for their futures.

Young women in Florida confront numerous obstacles to growing up and reaching their potential. They need positive female role models; examples of women who gain strength by coming together to network and knowing the importance of giving something back to their communities and to women statewide.

Who better to set that example than you?

The Commission invites you to join us in our endeavor to help young women of Florida successfully navigate the oftentimes rocky path to adulthood. While we are just in the preliminary stages of organizing our mentoring program, we are working to develop a database of women leaders throughout the state who are willing to assist in our efforts. If you are interested in supporting this program as a speaker, mentor, volunteer, advisor or in some other fashion, contact the FCSW office.

The Commission congratulates you for your achievements and efforts on behalf of the women of the state and we look forward to future successful and collaborative efforts geared toward the betterment of the young women of Florida.
