Our YWLP Big Sisters are the face of the program, but it takes a village to bring dozens of UVA women in to the local community to mentor middle school girls every year! The interns who help with program operations for YWLP have created a series of posts to introduce you to the students serving as YWLP mentoring group facilitators.
