Creating a Safe and Empowering Community
You asked for a place to talk; we're here to listen. You asked for a community; we're here to build one. You asked for a place to grow; we're here to help you thrive. Thrive is a mentorship program for sophomore women to build new relationships and engage in authentic conversation. The program consists of weekly small group meetings facilitated by upperclasswomen held throughout the spring semester. Topics for discussion include the intersection of salient aspects of one’s identity, passions and vocations, community and friendship, goal-setting, and much more!
Take this chance to connect with upperclasswomen and mentors, build community, and talk about the shared experiences of being students at BC.
Sophomore women meet weekly with their small groups in the spring semester. Weekly 90-minute meetings occur in small groups of six to seven sophomore women and two junior and/or senior mentors. Weekly meeting times are determined by the group before the start of the spring semester. Other commitments include a winter welcome event, monthly program-wide dinners in the spring, and a closing event.
