Celebrate the International Day of Girl with Polished Pebbles

The International Day of the Girl will be celebrated around the world on Friday, October 11. This is a perfect day to join Polished Pebbles Girls Mentoring Program to create early exposure to job experiences for young girls in Chicago. Polished Pebbles seeks to ensure the employability of young women in high-demand jobs through our job shadowing program with partnering businesses. Girls travel to company campuses and stores to experience a typical workday and learn from their business mentors about the skills needed to perform different jobs well. For girls, this experience expands the way they view the world, and enhances their ambition about the role they aspire to play in it
