The Sister 2 Sister Mentoring Program was founded by the Director of the Women’s Resource Center, Deborah Parker. The Program’s inception in 2007 stemmed from Parker’s leadership to support students through mentorship while creating a safe space for them to express their views and concerns. Parker’s idea to pair students has been so successful that it prompted her to draft a proposal that garnered national attention from the Liz Claiborne Foundation. With the aid of a generous grant from the foundation, Ms. Parker launched the flagship program in Spring 2008. Since its launch, the program has successfully grown from 10 to 50 students. The educational workshops and fun activities keep students engaged.
