Bee The Difference Mentoring Program
Bee the Difference Mentoring Program is a non-profit organization, established with the purpose of providing mentoring, education support and spiritual guidance to teen girls and young adult.
We yearn to provide teen girls, aged 13 – 18, with advanced communication, leadership, conflict resolution, team building, and decision-making skills to ensure overall welfare at schools, homes, and communities.
We believe that by offering a caring learning environment, young girls will receive the essential support and guidance they need in order to achieve success in their lives, considering the existing difficulties they face in their social and personal lives.
Through this program, as well as outside workshops, conferences and special events, we strive to provide sufficient guidance to young girls through biblical insights and real-life experiences.
Our objective is to indulge in the sense of optimism and confidence needed to make a Difference.
