Franklin County High School At-Risk Youth Empowerment Mentor for DIVAS

DIVAS (Dreamer Independent Valuable Accomplished Strong) is a mentoring and empowerment program. The goal of the program is to mentor at risk girls identified by faculty and follow them throughout their high school career. That means Bonners will start at DIVAS as a freshman and mentor a group of high school freshman girls, ideally both groups will graduate from college and high school respectively creating a tight bond. Through individual and group mentoring the girls will eventually embody DIVAS. Part of the goal of this program is to increase in the graduation rates because the girls are learning self worth, goal setting skills, and leadership development
