Heather Harvison and the mentors of My Sister's Circle change girls' lives.
Heather's search 12 years ago for an opportunity to volunteer at a Baltimore elementary school resulted in the founding of My Sister's Circle, a mentoring group for girls from impoverished Baltimore neighborhoods.
In that time, the group has paired 120 girls entering middle school with women who commit seven years to mentoring them, and who truly bring these children into their own lives. More than 90 percent of our girls have gone to college, and this year, we celebrated the college graduations of two girls from our first group of fifth-graders.
