“Redefine” supports our mentorship and leadership programs as well as enrichment classes. Our mentorship program caters to the development of junior high and high school aged young ladies.
Honoring the 2020 Redefine Graduates
“I would like to continue my education at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge for the fall semester of 2020. I want to study Psychology to help people because many times they are not fully understood by others. I want to thank everyone who has changed my life in any shape or form from my family to my friends to my mentor, Jasmine Spear. The mentorship has really impacted how I go about approaching problems and how I solve them. My relationship with God has also improved because I have someone I can talk to about my faith.”
“I will be attending ULM,and majoring in Nursing. I heard of Pink Nails from some friends who said that it was interesting, fun and inspirational. My mentors opened up new perspectives on things and expressed their situations with you. In the group I felt really comfortable with asking and talking about personal issues that I had, it is also a sisterhood where I met new people and grew bonds with them.Pink nails encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone more and just take chances. I really appreciate you all for this experience.”
“Mentorship is about guiding a less experienced person and helping them achieve more. Mentorship changed my life for the better. It has caused me to look at life and situations different. The main things mentorship has taught me was to always be respectful, Leadership is key, never let setbacks hold you from doing something, and always give back. Philippians 2:3 “Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.” Leadership has taught me to be humble and considerate of other people. A great leader will always get people to do great things! Mentorship “Redefined” my life and I am forever grateful. I am very thankful because now I know that I was never alone in becoming a better person.”
Navigate- Our Navigate curriculum incorporates spiritual and practical tools to better equip young women to succeed. Following its name, the curriculum incorporates principles from positive psychology, emotional awareness, basic faith principles, and leadership skills to help ladies build their respective toolkits and “navigate” the course of life.
We identified the following points as target areas to address for the young women within our mentoring program:
– A lack of positive role models with whom they can identify with
-A lack of positive life skills and ability to apply healthy decision making
-A lack of confidence/guidance in the ability to attain worthy goals
-The positive benefits associated with giving through community service
