College women needed for mentoring programs

The Department of Health and Human Performance is looking for college women to volunteer as mentors in two programs offered on campus this fall.

Alamance Girls in Motion, established on campus in 2006, is a program for girls in 4 and 5 grade that provides mentorship, physical activity and education on topics such as fueling the body, body shapes and sizes and the importance of physical activity on Wednesday afternoons between 3;45-5:15 p.m. for eight weeks.

The brand new Girls to Empowered Teens program is for 6th and 7th grade girls and will be held on campus on Mondays from 3:45-5:15 p.m. also for eight weeks. Both programs seek college women to volunteer as mentors, provide some education in small groups, and serve as exercise partner for the girls with whom they are matched.

Some training is required and is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 3 (GET) and Wednesday, Sept. 5 (AGIM). The programs start the following week with an orientation, followed by eight weeks of program sessions. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Liz Bailey at or 278-5862.
