SHE-CAN Mentoring Program
WHY MENTORS ARE IMPORTANT
The true value of the mentee-mentor relationship lies in our scholars' untapped potential. Through their mentor relationships they learn to break the cycle of suppression and patriarchy in their countries and become powerful women who navigate life as equals. Most importantly, they learn the value of pulling up other women.
SHE-CAN pulls together teams of 5-6 mentors and matches each with high potential, low-income young women from Cambodia, Liberia and Rwanda to help them win a U.S. college scholarship, succeed on campus, and launch a leadership career.
SHE-CAN is looking for 20 new mentor teams for 2022, and our mentor recruitment period begins in January and concludes in May.

Step 1: Lead or Join a Team
Step 2: Teams Help Scholars Apply for Scholarship
Step 3: Teams Help Scholars Transition to the U.S.
Upon acceptance to a U.S. college, mentors become critical to helping scholars acclimate to life in the U.S. and successfully manage their college careers.
Step 4: Teams Support Scholars in Launching Their Careers
Mentors open up their extended networks to ensure their mentee has connections, internships, and job opportunities. With SHE-CAN, the relationships can last a lifetime as mentors help aspiring leaders find their voice and power.
