Tribe Leaders
Within each tribe, the Mentors should appoint a Lead Girl and Assistant to the Leader. They would rotate every 2 months to give more girls an opportunity to grow in leadership. The Mentors should remind them that they are positioned to serve their tribe by taking on more responsibilities like: assisting their Mentors, communicating announcements, leading prayers, songs, games, reaching out to others in the tribe in their time of need (sickness, grief, other challenges) and rallying the support of the others, proposing improvements and incentives, encouraging the girls to come on time and invite others, etc. 

We mentor the teen-aged girl in overcoming life’s challenges with dignity, integrity, creativity, and leadership from a biblical worldview, and introduce her to a host of life skills that allow her to discover her interests and develop her talents to fulfill her God-given purpose.
