Mentoring for Girls Strengthens Mixed-Income Communities

In 2014, Big Sister named the collaboration between TACC, Harbor Point Community Task Force, and property management the Community Partnership of the Year. Mia Roberts, Vice President of Recruitment and Community Partnerships at Big Sister, explains why this partnership is exceptional. “This partnership stands as an example of what can be accomplished when everyone has mutually established goals and holds each other accountable to the community’s need. Collaborations can be tough, even with just two organizations involved, but all the pieces came together at Harbor Point. This partnership is an example of what organizations can do together when all oars are in the water and everyone is rowing together.”

In its pilot year, the mentoring program served 22% of girls between the ages of 7 and 15 residing at Harbor Point; the strategy aims to create a “tipping point,” where quality work with a concentration of girls in one neighborhood changes the culture.
