MyFACE, Inc. was formed in 2008 to provide opportunities for personal development and leadership, including communication, esteem-building, responsibility, self-respect, respect for others, acknowledging/ encouraging other women, trust, relationship -building, team building and problem solving.There is a continuing need for women to realize their worth in order to realize opportunities available to them. Once they know who they are, what they are, and why they’re here, they are likely to soar!
MyFACE makes that happen through its esteemed group of volunteers! Our primary program at this time is MENTOR (Mentoring, Empowerment, Nurturing, Training, Opportunities, Responsibility), a hands - on program that provides mentors to unemployed/ underemployed families in Forsyth County. These mentors participate in intensive training in, not only mentoring, but also coaching, career development, goal -setting, community resources and other needed tools for working with families for “enhancing skills of the workforce.”
Three qualities that make MENTOR special are: 1.) Its holistic aspect, addressing all dimensions that affect human beings--financial, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs; 2.) Mentors work one-on-one with each head of household to encourage and motivate them; and 3.) Mentors help families develop Family Empowerment Plans (FEPs) for establishing goals/strategies for success and seeing them to fruition.
She was fierce. She was simple. She was crazy and always had something to say. She had flaws, but when she was down she got right back up. She was a beast in her own way but one word described her best… Strong!
