Mentors Opening Doors, Enriching Lives

MODEL (Mentors Opening Doors, Enriching Lives) is successfully implemented in the Westerville City School District middle schools and serves about 140 girls a year.

The MODEL program is committed to connecting students to their peers and strong adult women mentors from the community, while focusing meetings on self-esteem, goals, positive choices and thinking about the future. 

Students participate in monthly sessions with the adult mentors. 

MODEL seeks to engage, inspire and encourage these young females as they prepare for high school. 

The mentors help provide leadership, wisdom and support to the students each month
