APPLY TO BE A MENTOR
As a mentor it is a requirement to commit for at least 6 months and pass a state regulated criminal background check. The benefits of being a mentor are up to the individual but some believe that mentoring allows for one’s experience to be benefitted by others and possibly to receive gratitude that you’re making a difference in the world.

“The Fig Factor Foundation is an amazing organization that not only helps young Latinas grow as a person, but also prepares and encourages them to face the world. I, myself, have been to many events and programs, such as the CORE program, which consists of 12 girls going to a 2-day class and sharing thoughts and experiences. We open up to each other and share how we would like to be seen and how we would like to change the world. It is a great program, which leaves girls very energetic and ready for anything to come. After those two days, each girl gets to be mentored for 6 months. This helps guide us the right direction if we ever feel stuck or simply need to be heard. I would recommend this program to every Latina in the world, especially if you are feeling down and need some motivation. This program will motivate you and make you feel alive!”
