Empowering Girls

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."
