Mentoring girls is a challenge. Girls will come to mentors with hard questions and great hope. Sometimes mentors will be able to help make their lives better; other times they will feel that they have not done very much. This guide serves as a road map for mentors. This guide focuses on a very important step in young women's journey toward realizing their full potential and securing a better future for themselves, their families and their communities. School-to-work transitions are complex and hold many challenges; young women in particular are vulnerable to underemployment, low wages, job insecurity and a high risk of exploitation. This guide aspires to provide information, advice and support to help young women move beyond these barriers and realize their career aspirations. (Contains 11 footnotes.)
