Her Honor Mentoring
Her Honor Mentoring offers a professional apprenticeship to 40 promising high school senior girls in Westchester. The program, which provides a platform for young women to reach their full potential, reinforces the importance of college education and ultimately a meaningful professional life. Young women achieve a sense of confidence and independence that will lead them to a career guided by their passion.
Developed by Nicole Sheindlin and Judith Sheindlin, Her Honor Mentoring provides an innovative way to boost self confidence in young women at the workplace and everyday life.
In August 2012, Her Honor Mentoring became a collaborative partner of MHA Westchester. For more information about this program, please visit http://www.herhonor.org
