Are you crafty? Mentor with Space of Her Own!

Are you crafty? Mentor with Space of Her Own!

SOHO - Space of Her Own is excited to announce that we are seeking mentors for the 2014-2015 school year for a new program at Arlington's Hoffman-Boston elementary.

Space of Her Own helps transform the lives of fifth-grade girls by pairing them with local professional women for a yearlong structured mentoring program. Using art as the catalyst, SOHO is designed to teach girls to value creativity, live healthy lives, communicate openly, and give back to others. In the end, SOHO not only provides girls with a personalized creative study space, but also empowers them with the confidence to succeed as a lifelong member of the Sisterhood club.

SOHO meets once per week during the school year from the hours of 5:30pm-8:00pm. Girls and their mentors enjoy dinner together followed by a creative arts project, which can range from designing mirror mosaics to completing a photography exhibit to building their own lap desk. At the end of the year, the projects are all used for a room renovation.
