Writing a Mission Statement For Your Girls Mentoring Organization

Writing a mission statement is very important.

It’s almost impossible to expect to have a successful business without a mission statement. When writing your mission statement think about the influence you would like to have with the girls you mentor. What are some important topics or life skills you would like to teach. Also think about the results you would like to see happen in their lives, such as enhancing their self-esteem, body image or academics?  Below I’ve listed two important questions that most people want to know when writing a mission statement:

  • What should every mission statement have? The best mission statements include the purpose, benefits and works of the organization. Your mission statement helps you to identify your ideas, goals and inspirations for your organization.
  • What should I do before writing my mission statement? Before writing your mission statement its important that you spend some time thinking about what your organization hopes to accomplish.  The mission statement gives you direction. It’s a constant reminder of your purpose and where you are headed as an organization.


Below I shared Sisters of Hope mission statement as an example.

Sisters of Hope mission:

“Sisters of Hope provides prevention and empowerment programs to girls. We strive to enhance their lives through enrichment programs, products, workshops and events that serve and inspire individual advancement. Our programs result in the increase of confidence, courage, educational and personal development.”
