HSBC and Girls Inc. today announced a robust mentoring program that seeks to prepare young girls from New York City high schools for college, careers and bold futures.

The pilot program extends a collaboration between HSBC Bank USA, N.A., (HSBC) and Girls Inc. that since 2015 has provided critical educational support and mentoring opportunities to thousands of girls across the country, particularly those from low-income communities, and directly involved hundreds of HSBC employees.

Over the course of the 2017-18 academic year, HSBC will collaborate with Girls Inc. of New York City to offer a unique mentoring experience to ten high-school students: bi-monthly one-on-one sessions to discuss such topics as college applications, career options, resume building, interpersonal skills, and other subjects that may be on the minds of the young teens, as well as monthly group sessions that bring together mentors and mentees to discuss such topics as financial literacy, the life of a banker, negotiation skills, building a personal brand, and how these young women can become the next generation of leaders in STEM and financial services.

"HSBC has been a valuable collaborator throughout the development of this unique program. They’ve taken their commitment to education and preparing youth to a new level with this high-impact mentoring opportunity that will provide crucial support to girls facing tough odds but determined to succeed." Dr. Pamela Maraldo, CEO, Girls Inc. of New York City.
