How It Works

Supporting Our Girls

We love to travel!  Recently, we visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. We also toured colleges such as Howard University, Northwestern University, Spelman College, and the University of Illinois in Urbana – Champaign.  In addition, we participate in career readiness luncheons, job shadows and host many fun and educational experiences.

 Ladies of Virtue’s mentoring and leadership program provides culturally-relevant programming so our girls become confident and purpose-driven leaders.  Our participants are exposed to prominent women from a wide variety of industries who share similar backgrounds as our girls.  In addition, our sisters interact with mentors who take a hands-on, never give up approach, with the goal of building long-lasting relationships.
