HERstory Empowers Resilience



HERstory Empowers Resilience, more affectionately known as H.E.R., is a dynamic mentorship program. We aim to connect women of color at Penn with 3rd and 4th grade girls of color at Powel Elementary School. We use the one-to-one mentorship model to design programming that helps build positive relationships between young girls and young women. Our mentors seek to help foster growth and personal development among the mentees through the exploration of each girl's HERstory. We believe mentorship is a form of activism that can replenish the spirit. H.E.R. has received great support from DuBois College House, Makuu: The Black Cultural Center, The Netter Center, The Gamma Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., Sister Sister, Powel Elementary School, and Campaign for Community.
