Jordan (Diehl) Mann ’12 shared with us her experience volunteering with Step Up Women’s Network.
“This is my second year volunteering as a mentor for the high school women in under-served communities in Chicago, but it was my first time attending their “College Connection Conference” as I typically work with their after-school programs. It was a really neat event!
It was a day-long conference where we were paired with a high school woman, attending sessions focused on getting the young women excited about secondary education, and addressing potential concerns they may have. As a mentor, our role was to share our experiences in undergrad and let the women know they have professional women who care about their development.”
