Albany-- A young Albany woman who founded a national mentoring program is about to tell her story on national televison.
Much to her desire, Haley Kilpatrick got the attention of NBC and will appear on The Today Show next month to talk about the success of Girl Talk.
She started the program that pairs high school mentors with middle school students back when she was in high school. Now it reaches 30,000 girls in the United States, Canada and even Africa.
The girls learn about everything from bullying to self-esteem and health. Haley never expected Girl Talk would grow so large.
"We really adopt the philosophy of what can you do for the world, not what the world can do for you and we reach all demographics, all girl schools, private, public schools. We have inner city chapters where these girls are getting out and going to habitat and making volunteers lunches, stepping out and putting themselves in someone else's shoes," said Kilpatrick.
Haley will graduate from college next month and then take on the role of executive director full-time. She'll appear with Matt and the rest of the gang live on December 10th.
