In 2015, Daughters of Worth was launched as a 501c(3) non-profit organization that exists to educate, equip, and empower girls of all ages to become strong women of influence in their communities. This vision began with 12 middle/high school girls and its’ signature program – GLAM Girls (Girls Living a Mission). However, interest quickly increased, and in 2016, a new partnership was formed with the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain to offer the opportunity to even more girls within the area. Through this extension, GLAM girls was soon made available to more than 60 girls!
As this grass roots non-profit has continued to increase programs, expand its’ territory, and seek to serve even more girls within the county and surrounding areas, additional partnerships have been established to pave the pathway of empowerment for girls of all ages!
During the 2018-19 school year, Daughters of Worth will have the opportunity to offer GLAM girls at Ayden Elementary, Elmhurst Elementary, Northeast Elementary, John Small Elementary, and Washington High School!
Aligned with the NC Common Core of Essential Standards for Character Education and 21st century skills, GLAM girls is designed to equip the girls of our communities with the education needed to make positive choices today, so that they can create the tomorrow of their dreams!
Each module implements hands-on learning, interactive discussion and collaboration, team-building, journal reflections and service projects. Key concepts of the modules incorporates knowing your self worth, building positive friendships, valuing your body, creating a vision for your life and goal setting, and serving others.
Greenville Noon Rotarian, Lydia Morgan, served as the Rotary grant sponsor for Daughters of Worth, declaring that “Daughters of Worth is truly impacting the lives of young girls through its programs and exemplifies the Rotarian motto of service over self.”
The $900 grant awarded will directly impact the girls of Pitt County through GLAM girls. It is the vision and mission of Daughters of Worth to ensure that every girl truly knows her self worth and as she discovers this truth, her world will be transformed!
