The Girl Project: Next Generation (GPNG) middle school mentoring program fosters The Girl Project alumni's commitment to social activism by engaging them as mentors. This program uses a cross-age peer mentoring model that allows mentors to “learn by teaching” as they design and lead workshops based on their experiences with The Girl Project. GPNG unleashes their creativity, thoughts, opinions, and feelings about contemporary girlhood. As in The Girl Project for high school-aged girls, the mentoring workshops focus on an uplifting sisterhood among the mentees and relationships between mentors and mentees as well as guiding mentees toward the development of a final performance for chosen classmates and families. GPNG also serves as a "recruiting pipeline" to introduce girls in local schools to The Girl Project and encourages them to participate when they enter high school.
