STAR SISTERS MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
A way to connect Turner Syndrome girls in high school with college-aged girls to form a sisterhood. It is a pen pal system in which you are connected to communicate by writing letters. This is an opportunity for girls with Turner Syndrome to raise awareness of their disorder, while also receiving support and guidance from a mentor. For mentors, it is a chance to learn about the experiences of a younger girl, becoming an advocate for and friend of your Star Sister.
HOW IT WORKS:
1. Apply to be a mentor or a mentee. Tell us about yourself, your interests, and your goals for participation in the program.
- Mentors must be over the age of 18.
- Mentees must be between the ages of 13-17.
- Mentees require parental approval to join the program. The only information shared with your Star Sister will be your first name and home address.
2. Once your application has been received, we will reach out to you to answer any questions you have and to set you up with your Star Sister.
3. Start writing! Send at least one letter to your Star Sister per month. We’d love to hear about your experiences. The Turner Syndrome Foundation will not be responsible for monitoring conversations, but parents, mentors, or mentees may contact us with any concerns.
We hope that this program will raise awareness of Turner Syndrome and allow those affected to share their honest experiences, creating a relationship of positivity and support!
