Program design for a higher education mentorship program for Yemeni-American females in Kern County Inspire, Lead, Mentor (ILM)

Yemeni-American females (Yemeniat) in Kern County face many barriers that prevent and limit their educational aspirations. These barriers, when educational opportunities present themselves, limit what school they can go to, what area they can study, how late in the evening they can take courses, and how much involvement they can have on campus life. Due to the recent increase of Yemeniat in the educational community, this program is designed to help facilitate these opportunities in higher education for these women through mentorship. Raising the awareness of precedents and increasing support within the community will allow these women to prosper in their ambitions to become independent, empowered leaders in the community.
