NAWBO SA Foundation


Our High School Mentorship Program is a six-month educational program created by the NAWBO SA Foundation in 1999 to encourage young women to begin exploring entrepreneurship and what it takes to be successful.

NAWBO-SA is a volunteer organization whose members give their passion, time, and money to support this program. As a collaborative effort between NAWBO-SA members, Wells Fargo representatives, school representatives and administrators, community leaders, university and corporate sponsors, the High School Mentorship Program reaches hundreds of teen women in high schools across San Antonio.


THE MISSION OF THE PROGRAM IS TO:

  • Empower young women to reach for their dreams and design their own destiny
  • Encourage education beyond high school as a means to achieving life dreams
  • Emphasize the importance of financial literacy in achieving financial security
  • Explore entrepreneurship as a means to financial independence and career satisfaction
  • Educate in the skills necessary to drive their destiny


THE SIX-MONTH PROGRAM INCLUDES:

  • Opportunities for young ladies to network with their peers and with successful women business owners
  • Interactive presentations on business planning, skills and entrepreneurship
  • Mentoring sessions with participating students at each high school in the program
  • Two experiential, full-day conferences that focus on developing strategies, business plans, and resources for young women to start their own businesses
  • Business Plan training session that provides a “tool kit” on how to prepare a business plan
  • Business Plan Competition for college scholarships


Participants in the program have an opportunity to win a scholarship toward college tuition, with a total of $25,000 in scholarships awarded to 4 winners. To learn more about the impact of the program, download our flyer, here.
