Mentors play a large role in the bringing career and college awareness to teen girls in APPLI.

Says Ms. Goldberg, “The Alice Paul Foundation is an inspiring organization, and I was incredibly honored to be a part of such a worthwhile event. It was a fun and extremely rewarding experience to have the opportunity to speak with and mentor such bright and focused young women.” A regular volunteer with many local groups, Ms. Karpousis went on to add, “I agree.
