You Can be a WIT Mentor
Women in Training, Inc. is seeking university students and women professionals to serve as WIT Mentors to girls in the WIT Rites-of-Passage Circle and the WIT Leadership Development Circle. WIT Mentors will be asked to chaperone group experiential learning activities, or field trips. Each WIT Mentor will also spend time, one-on-one, coaching her mentee on university and career options, academic performance and preparing for college entrance exams. At times, the mentor and mentee may get together, with parental permission, for ice cream or a cup of tea.
Please note that all WIT Mentors will be required to undergo a background check.
Young people of middle and high school age who identify as girls and young women may join Women in Training, Inc.
We need you! WIT needs volunteers with a wide variety of skills to accomplish our mission. Please contact us to find out how you can help!

School Board Vice President Claudia Mitchell Gives Away WITKITS for MLK Day of Service
Claudia Mitchell, Montgomery County School Board Vice President, led the giveaway of
Women In Training WITKITS in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service at Goodwyn Middle School. Sadly, we did not have the honor of meeting with students because of the COVID19 pandemic. The WITKITS of menstrual and hygiene supplies were lovingly packed by the Montgomery Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated, led by Dr. Courtney Griffin. Women in Training volunteers will return to Goodwyn Middle each month with replenishment supplies.
Thank you to the staff and donors of the Rosa Parks Museum at Troy University for contributing menstrual pads for our monthly #WITKITS distribution to menstruating people in our community.
