TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- A mentoring program is calling on the community to help its mission of supporting teens.

It's called Girls 2 D.I.V.A.S., or Driven, Initiative, Virtuous, Astounding and Successful.

5. Divas stand up! knowing your rights as a citizen

6. International and globalization awareness

7. Moving from me to we by building a sisterhood
