The mission of the Polished Pebbles Girls Mentoring Program is to provide girls (7-17 years old) with the opportunity of learning the vital life skill of effective communication. Our Polished Pebbles Girls Mentoring program instills confidence in girls to face the challenges of daily life by substituting aggressive forms of communicating and problem solving with new strategies that allow them to gain a solid reputation and respect without retaliating.
Polished Pebbles equips girls in the greater Chicago metropolitan area with skills that allow them to develop the confidence and ability to:
- Speak up in class
- Join groups and seek leadership positions
- Communicate effectively and respectfully with adults
- Have peaceful interactions with their peer
- Prepare for future careers
We offer a combination of school-based mentoring and community-based mentoring programming that is open to the public.
Polished Pebbles helps all of our girls to S.H.I.N.E. : Smile, Say Hello, Introduce Yourself, Nod your head, and End the conversation.
