The vision for L.E.A.G.U.E. Mentoring Program is to provide a global network of professional women to impact adolescent girls by exposing them to professional and social experiences.

Research suggest that gender-based extra-curricular programming is more effective when there are a range of options made available for girls ages 11-17 (Girl Scout Research Institute, 2002).
Using the Girls Scout Research Institute’s model for identifying adolescents by age, 3D Girls, Inc.’s mentoring program appeals to our girls on three distinct levels: Little League (ages 12 and under), Minor League (13-15) and Major League (16 and older). In an effort to recognize the developmental needs of each age group the following are incorporated in our age-appropriate curriculum and/or activities:

Little League – (5th grade girls; ages 12 and under)
Weekly meeting topics includes, but are not limited to:

  • What is leadership?
  • Organizational Skills
  • Study Skills
  • Self-Esteem

Minor League – (6th – 8th grade girls; ages 13 -15)
Weekly meeting topics includes, but are not limited to:

  • Communication Etiquette
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Anger Management
  • Time Management

Major League – (9th – 12th grade girls; ages 16 and up)
Scholars meet twice per week after-school; meeting topics includes, but are not limited to:
– Volunteering & Community Service: What’s the difference?
A course that explains the difference between volunteering and engaging in a service-leaning project.

 

A service learning component where students leave the school’s campus to engage in meaningful experiences within their communities.

Community Service Learning

In addition to serving, learn how to develop their own service projects and measure its effectiveness through their own evaluations.

Literacy Programming 

The ‘Reading on the Road’ initiative has been created by 3D Girls, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization in Atlanta, GA. The program was designed to develop a culture of readers among low income school communities of Metro-Atlanta. The mission of this mobile project is to increase the access of virtual learning tools, improve fluency and phonemic awareness, and build confidence among young readers. 3D Girls, Inc. will provide access to literacy kits that include electronic devices, e-tools, and books to families in low-income school communities. In addition, the program will link high school mentors with elementary school students for one-on-one reading activities. Each youth reading presentation will be aligned with evidence-based practices that will infuse with drama, puppetry arts, and music into interactive activities. The ‘Reading on the Road’ initiative will not only serve as a catalyst for increasing academic achievement for primary and secondary school students, but it will also provide opportunities for parents to engage in learning opportunities (i.e. GED training, computer classes, job exposure). Parents and family members will be able to enroll into classes to develop skills in locations that are accessible within the community (i.e. Recreation Center, Library, and/or Schools). 3D Girls, Inc. is intentional about bringing literacy tools to our community’s families, which is why we’ve entitled this project, ‘Reading on the Road’.
