LAST CHANCE to apply for the 4word Mentor Program

small headshotWe know the 4word Mentor Program is a life-changing 10-week experience in which every professional Christian woman should take part. But don’t take our word for it! Hear from one of our mentors:

“This program is designed to provide a supportive environment for a young woman to ask questions of an older/more career experienced woman. It is Christ centered and allows her to be engaged in spiritually focused personal and professional growth. I highly recommend participating!”
