Commitment to Action

Young Girls At-Risk

Commitment by

Mary Baldwin College

In 2008, Mary Baldwin College committed to improving young, at-risk girls' self-esteem and probability of pursuing higher education by connecting Mary Baldwin students to at-risk girls both locally and globally. Mary Baldwin will connect 19 African-American Mary Baldwin students with 18 African-American sixth grade girls from Stauntan, Virginia for a one-year, weekly mentorship program. For spring break, Mary Baldwin will send nine students to an abuse center for girls aged 12-20 in Kentucky. Finally, Mary Baldwin will sponsor a clothing drive for girls at the Dharma Moli School in Kathmandu, Nepal, which educates up to 10 girls at risk of being victims of human trafficking or child labor.
