Daughters of Worth is a unique mentorship that exists to educate, equip, and empower girls of all ages to become strong women of influence in their communities.
We live out our mission through GLAM (Girls Living a Mission) Mentorship, Notes of Hope (Handwritten cards of love, hope and encouragement to girls in local schools), Grace Gifts (our newest initiative to counteract poverty and empower girls towards financial freedom!)

Through the development of Grace Gifts, Daughters of Worth participants have the opportunity to learn about business and financial management. Utilizing their creativity, skills, and talents, participants may present their handmade items (jewelry, paintings, poems, pottery, etc.) for sale through Grace Gifts. The girls assist with vendor events, as well as sharing the “shoppe” with others. 30% of all sales goes directly to the girls for their own personal use. 30% of all sales will be invested into the Grace Gifts Scholarship Fund to promote continued education. 40% of all sales is invested in Daughters of Worth.
Through this unique program, the girls have the opportunity to meet local business owners, discover success stories, engage in financial management classes from a very young age and learn that they have the creativity, skills, and talents to become financially independent. In addition, they will learn skills such as: developing customer service skills, marketing, maintaining inventory, completing transactions, counting change and organizational skills.
In 2016, Daughters of Worth launched our “Notes of Hope” program to encourage, inspire and serve girls in local schools with handwritten cards of encouragement and love (written from women from their very own communities!) This program launched with one school and 12 girls. By the end of 2017, we were successfully serving 187 girls in 12 schools and 2 counties each and every month with these precious cards of encouragement!
During the 2018-19 school year, Daughters of Worth has partnered with Pitt County Schools, Beaufort County Schools, Hyde County Schools, and Johnston County Schools to encourage and inspire the girls of these communities as well! We are excited to announce that we anticipate serving well over 1,000 girls each month with Notes of Hope to remind her that she is truly loved, valued, cherished and has the ability to fulfill her every dream and goal!
