Golden Connection Pal Program

 

"It is reassuring to know that the struggles you face are not yours alone, and that others have not only faced similar tribulations but have persevered and grown in spite of them. Working together as a Mentee and Mentor team provided us with inspiration and encouragement. We both were able to grow from the friendship that was formed from our relationship. It has been an essential and enjoyable part of the program knowing that we have each together to rely on and confide in." - Connie (Mentee) & Julia (Mentor)

This program connects single moms with other women so that they can share experiences, develop friendships, and support each other.

Why Participate in the GCP Program?

Mentor: Give Back

Being a pal to a single mom will give you the chance to share some of your life experiences and make a difference in another person’s life. As part of the Golden Connection Pal Program, you can be your partner’s mentor and, most importantly, her friend.

The aim of the Golden Connection Pal Program is to provide a helping hand. As an established woman in the community, we hope that you will be willing to give your time to be that person for someone else.

Mentee: Find Support and Guidance

This program will allow you to connect with an experienced and established woman. Your pal will be someone who has experienced the ups and downs of life and will be able to lend you advice and a sympathetic ear. Since single moms cannot always find the time to relax, have fun and laugh, this program provides you with an opportunity to do just that. We hope that you can use the Golden Connection Pal Program to set aside that time for yourself and enjoy the company of a new friend.

Overview

Over the course of 6 months to one year, the Pals will meet regularly – usually once every 2 weeks. During these meetings, Pals are free to do whatever activities they like – from chatting over coffee, to seeing a movie, to attending a local show or event.
