Every week, Daughters of Worth receives numerous texts, calls, and emails inquiring about how to get local teen girls involved with the empowerment opportunities available through this organization. As a response to this request and a passion to serve even more girls in our communities, Daughters of Worth is excited to announce that beginning the weekend of February 8th-9th, we will launch our newest initiative: Empower Her! events!

Empower Her! events are designed to do three things:

  1. Create Awareness.
  2. Generate Conversation.
  3. Share Community Resources.

We believe that today’s teen girls are saturated with images, messages and beliefs around some fairly challenging issues, that to be honest, most adults aren’t even confronted with at this level.

Therefore, it is the heart of Daughters of Worth to take these “hot topic” items and to bring real awareness, real conversation, and real, local community resources – so that we can better educate, equip, and empower the girls of our communities!

Realizing that human trafficking is currently the 3rd largest organized crime industry in the world (bringing in a revenue currently of $150 billion each year) and NC ranks #8 in the USA for human trafficking (with Charlotte being #3 in the state), Daughters of Worth is seeking to truly make an impact in our communities by empowering the girls of our communities with information that is relevant to them.

Partnering with ENC Stop Human Trafficking Now!, the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office, Ruth’s House, Bright Futures of Beaufort County, the Church of the Good Shepherd, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain, Daughters of Worth is excited to announce that Empower Her! events are now available for the teen girls of your community – and completely Free of Charge!

Strategically scheduled the weekend before Valentine’s Day, #Love&Lipgloss will feature food, music, door prizes, lip gloss, bling and so much fun! Keynote speaker, Sarah Tellis of True Justice International will be joining us, sharing about her heart and experience of serving survivors of trafficking in New Bern, NC and providing those attending with valuable information regarding the signs of trafficking, prevention tips, and how to report as needed.

In addition, Sheriff Paula Dance, Desha Lane and Diane Taylor will also be joining us to share about the red flags of dating violence and the impact of social media in the lives of teen girls.

We believe that empowerment begins with prevention, and prevention begins with awareness, and awareness begins with conversation.

Today is the day. Now is the time. To empower the girls of our communities by having these real conversations around these real issues – so that we can bring awareness, and we can prevent the girls of our communities from decisions that could ultimately destroy her.

#Love&LipGloss is ONE event – Offered in 2 Locations for your convenience.
