Thank you for visiting our website. My name is Regina E. Coley and I am the Executive Director of Leading Ladies of Legacy Inc. I am very excited about our accomplishments thus far and more excited by what the future holds for Leading Ladies of Legacy Inc.

Leading Ladies of Legacy Inc. is unique because of the experiences and expertise of its mentors and supporters. Coming from a family of educators and predominantly strong women, I value the characteristics and skills of leaders. I know the behaviors it takes to be a successful and resilient woman. I also know the behaviors to avoid and I believe it’s critical to share the lessons I’ve learned.

It is crucial for girls and women of all ages to build the basic skills needed to be effective leaders and to understand how to build their core values. Our goal is to create a class of leaders for the next level of responsibility who will be prepared to move our world forward.

    Good afternoon,

    I am working on a parenting blog for the AJC about a new study that came out on mentoring programs. I’d love to get your thoughts on it.

    You can find an explanation of the study here: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2016-03/uoh-smp031716.php. I’m not sure if your mentoring program is specific to any age group, but if you could explain to me the basics, that would be great.
    How many mentors and kids are involved?
    How often do they meet, etc.?
    Also, as you will see, the study talks about training. Do your mentors go through any training?
    Do you have any problems with retention?
    Do you have any statistics on how the kids in the program have been helped by meeting with mentors?

    I’d love to also get thoughts from a parent of a student involved in the program, if you have anyone who would be willing to either email me their thoughts or talk on the phone briefly.

    Please let me know if you can help with the article as soon as possible.

    Thank you,
    Camie Young

    • Hello Camie,
      Our programs range from about 7-18 years old. They occur in a small group setting and meet once a week for an hour. The number of mentors and mentees vary but are kept small to provide more individualized attention, no group will ever go past 20 girls to 4-5 mentors. Mentors do have to go through a training that includes healthy relationships, mandated reporting, academic and personal support, the advantages and disadvantages of girls of color, and an overview of our organization. I do not have problems with retention (fingers crossed). We are new to Cobb County coming from Fulton so there was that transition but aside from that, not really. I hope that answered everything for you. If not please feel free to email me rcoley@leadingladiesoflegacy.org. I would be happy to assist further.
      Regina 🙂
