to become confident and purpose-driven leaders
Ladies of Virtue (LOV) is a transformative mentoring and leadership experience
for girls, ages 9 to 18, living in underserved communities.
Our LOV sisters are prepared for leadership through character development, career readiness and civic engagement.
After graduating from high-school, with successful completion of our leadership program, participants are mentored and supported for six additional years as LOV 4 Life alumni.

"One of the main reasons I LOVE LOV is because of my mentor Ashley Jones. She taught me that it is OK to be me and be the best that I can be. I really love her for that."
Taylor Philips, 14
I love LOV because of all the support I get from the people in the program. Jamila, my mentor, other mentors and the girls."
