Empowering the Girls of Our Community. Together.
In 2015, Daughters of Worth launched with a vision and mission to educate, equip, and empower girls of all ages to become strong women of influence in their communities.
What began with only 12 middle/high school girls has now grown to serving approximately 1,000 girls throughout Eastern NC each month through our six signature programs!
Each program is significantly different, yet is centered around our core mission and vision to Educate, Equip and Empower!
Girls Living a Mission group mentorship. This program is aligned with the NC Common Core Character Education and incorporates 21st Century Skills. The premise of GLAM girls is that each girl can truly create the tomorrow of her dreams by the decisions that she makes today! Components include: knowing your self worth, valuing your body, investing into positive friendship choices, having a vision for your life/goal setting, serving others, living with integrity, financial literacy, and character education.
NOTES OF HOPE
This program was developed in 2016 as an opportunity to inspire and encourage the girls of our communities through handwritten cards of encouragement, written by the women of our communities. All cards are created and designed by local girls and written by local women.
As a girl is “adopted” into the Notes of Hope program through her local school, she receives a handwritten card of inspiration and encouragement, a Note of Hope, each month throughout the school year and is then invited to a special event at the end of the year!
This program is our newest initiative designed to counteract poverty and empower girls towards financial freedom! Through a generous grant from The Louise R. Lester Foundation and partnership with educator, Holly Patrick, Daughters of Worth was able to successfully implement this signature program at John Small Elementary! Grace Gifts teaches financial literacy skills, instills strong work ethic, and equips girls in entrepreneurial skills!
Your financial gift directly impacts her as we seek to encourage, educate, equip, and empower her throughout her life! When you choose to invest into her, you are choosing to invest in her future!
News & Updates
The moment that she entered into Daughters of Worth, she. had my attention. Her sassy mouth cutting eyes and unwavering attitude often provided generous opportunities for her to engage with the school principal or school Resource Officer. Yet, there was something about her eyes… they sparkled. And when she smiled, there was a glimmer of hope that you could actually see. That is, if you took the time to pause and actually look.
Just as a single candle shining in the darkest of nights, Daughters of Worth exists to bring hope to the girls of our communities, surrounding her with a tribe to empower her through the journey and help her safely step into the future of her dreams!
“The key concept that I have taken away from Ns. Liles and the Daughters of Worth community, so far, is that even small portions of love, support, and care can completely change the world!
