List of Obama officials mentoring young women
First Lady Michelle Obama launched a year-long mentoring program for young women on Monday, matching the participants with two dozen top government officials who will tutor them on everything from careers, financial literacy college preparation and health and fitness.
"The germ of the idea was planted in March when Obama invited a star-studded array of women, ranging from entertainers to math geniuses, to fan out across the area and share their stories with students," reports The Post's First Lady correspondent Robin Givhan.
"Obama said she became interested in the power of mentoring as a corporate lawyer in Chicago. Her office, she said, was on the 47th floor of a downtown building and her windows faced south towards her old neighborhood."
