The Women Who Win mentoring program addresses the most significant and basic needs of student entrepreneurs by connecting them with one-on-one attention via an experienced mentor who listens to them, values them, and guides them towards self-esteem and a successful career with healthy relationships.

The mentor-mentee relationship combines on-site and off-site activities through monthly one- two hour interactions over a period of six months. Through this interaction, mentors listen and express genuine, dedicated interest in the life, needs, fears and desires of these student entrepreneurs. Further, through a combination of being themselves and deliberately sharing their own lives, mentors role-model integrity, self-esteem, opportunity, and healthy choices. The mentor also brokers opportunities for the mentee to learn in areas of interest, providing connections and opportunities for entrepreneurial and business ownership exploration. Mentors encourage their student entrepreneurs to pursue learning, complete their education, and achieve their dreams.

Each mentoring match is guided and supported by a project manager, who makes regular contact and is available to answer questions, giving advice to both the mentee and mentor. Through the WWW program, NAWBO hosts and sponsors a variety of group activities for mentoring pairs to interact with one other, as well as achieve a mutual bond. These activities include workshops, social events, and community outreach activities.

Mentored student-entrepreneurs show increased levels of self-esteem and self-worth, reduced absences from school, academic performance improvement, development of greater respect and interaction with peers and adults, learn the opportunities available to them, discover that choices they make have consequences impacting them throughout their lives, and show a greater understanding of the opportunities available to them as well as the positive impact they can have on their community and the world.
