GENERATION WOW is a program that focuses on the teenage girl; sharing the lessons of the positive and the possible through a year-long mentorship program. The connection of the leaders of today with the leaders of tomorrow is a powerful one and with the special GERALDINE mentor walk, the girls are given the opportunity to understand the value of mentorship, leadership, self-esteem and the building of a personal network.

As a WOW girl, your participation is made possible by a scholarship grant donated by the Remmer Family Foundation. In accepting this special honor, we expect that you will do everything in your power to make this event a success by fully participating in all Generation WOW guidelines and mentor activities.
