How It Works
Ladies of Virtue empowers girls to become confident and purpose-driven leaders. Each week, they attend our LOV Club sessions led by a professional who is trained through our Gold Star Mentoring process. During the sessions, our LOV sisters participate in team building activities, develop goals, learn job readiness techniques and prepare for life after high-school. LOV Club builds the confidence of each young woman so that they know who they are and what they stand for while also making a difference in their communities.
LOV Club participants receive a t-shirt and butterfly journal. Transportation to our mentoring moments (job shadow) events, lunch and snacks are always provided.
Ladies of Virtue is an approved CPS vendor. We are also a Strategic Source Vendor for the Social & Emotional Learning services at CPS which means that we were vetted for quality and alignment.
