Why Flourish Mentors?

Flourish mentors makes sure that no young woman is invisible and we aspire to help as many young women as possible through our workshops, well-being and professional mentoring. 

We would create a network of women with their own life experience to support every young woman!

A third (33%) of girls and young women aged 7 to 21 say they’d like more help and support to find ways to enjoy themselves and relax. This need rises to 44% the older young women get (17-21 years).
