One of our biggest dreams for the world is to help girls and women realize their full potential, discover their passions and set out to accomplish their goals! That's why we LOVE partnering with Girl Talk, a peer-to-peer mentoring program with a very simple premise: High school girls mentor middle school girls to help them deal with the issues they face during their early teenage years. We want to help young teenage girls build self-esteem, develop leadership skills and recognize the value of community service.
On that note, we're so excited to announce the 2016 Natural Life Give Love Laugh Scholarship!!! We want to encourage high school Girl Talk Leaders to live a passionate and fulfilling life by creating positive change around them. By making a meaningful impact in a community, each individual has the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy.
Natural Life and Girl Talk will award one applicant a $2,500 cash scholarship to aid with her college career. Additionally, five chosen leaders will receive inspiring Natural Life treasures for their college room worth $200.
It's never too late to start a chapter! Find out more information on that here! Not only is it so rewarding for both you and the girls you mentor, it's a great way to build leadership skills... and it looks awesome on your resume!
