Mentorship Program Overview

The Go for the Greens Foundation Inc. is hosting an exciting program that provides young women like you, ages 15 to 21, with an opportunity to meet and connect with women business leaders. This program is designed to recognize your leadership qualities and inspire you to dream big and focus on the next steps to realizing your potential as an entrepreneur or a leader in the workforce.

This mentoring initiative provides educational opportunities in a highly interactive environment to encourage you to learn from mentors as well as each other. The goal is to show you an array of top-level careers that are open to you, with the idea in mind that “You can’t be what you can’t see.” It will include in-person and virtual events.

The initiative continues with a one-day curriculum at the Go for the Greens 2019 business development conference on Friday, September 20, 2019, at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. This event offers you a unique opportunity to learn from women all over North America.

If you’d like to participate in the mentorship program, please fill out the enclosed application and submit it before 11:59 pm August 30th, 2019. The foundation will notify you as soon as possible whether you are accepted to participate in the in-person event at Walt Disney World.

Leveraging her “Breakthrough Mentality” mindset, Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour propelled herself from beat cop to combat pilot in a record-breaking three years and became the U.S. Marine Corps’ first African American female pilot and then America’s First African American Female Combat Pilot.
