Diamond In The Rough is a dynamic organization that helps girls of all ages and ethnic backgrounds in dealing with all type of issues and problems by having them talk about whatever is on their minds. they have deeply helped my daughter and for this I am eternally grateful! I have not been able to volunteer as I would have liked this year due to a multitude of issues but I certainly plan to do a much better job next year. They are a warm and welcoming group of women, lead by Nicole Steele, who open their arms and hearts and make everything else that is wrong in your life melt away! Thanks ladies and may God continue to bless where ever the soles of your feet may trod!!!

Being a volunteer for several years and now being a current board member of Diamond in the Rough (DITR) has been a true blessing in my life. My life is forever changed due to my participation with DITR and working closely with the founder and visionary of this dynamic organization. The community and the girls that DITR serve week after week year after year is forever changed for the better. I love working with young girls and women helping them to discover their self-worth and their gifts. DITR is very organized, compassionate, professional, and dedicated to enhancing and changing lives of women and young girls. I could go on and on about how awesome DITR is and will continue to be. If you are ever in the Snellville, GA area and want to see how empowering this organization is, stop by and visit and get a real life experience of lives being changed for the better.

Diamond In The Rough is an awesome youth development program. This program is a very much needed organization for such a time as this. I have been affiliated with DITR for more than 4 years and I have seen lives being changed and individuals grow in their own rights by leaps and bounds. DITR is a youth program that is structured to help shape young girls and young adults but there are also events and activities that are geared toward shaping women. Close to two years ago I had the opportunity to attend an event where mothers and daughters were given the charge to open up and break curses and break down barriers that were causing discord in the relationship and this event was not only life changing for me, but for all of the families that participated. I still recollect on the what I gained and learned from that event. Mrs. Nicole Steele is an angel right here on earth. Mrs. Nicole Steele has a heart for young girls and people. God is the head of this organization and Nicole has taking the charge of what it is that God has called her to do. She and her team are changing "one child, one family, one community at a time."

I have been a board member of Diamond In The Rough for several years. I am always amazed at the sincere care DITR not only takes for the girls but their parents as well. Helping to educate and empower them to be the best parents they can be as they educate and empower their girls to be the best they can be.

Being in Diamond In The Rough since 4th grade and almost eight years, has taught me that I have a dream! Also, Diamond In The Rough helped me understand my self-worth, made me a better leader and helped me realize why it's important to make a change in the community. Although this year will be my last year in the program and I plan to make it the best year by leaving a huge legacy at Diamond In The Rough that will be talked about years from now.

Mrs. Nicole Steele is a great role model and one of the most hard-work people that I know. Her heart to help young girls build their self-esteem is endless. I thank God for giving her the vision to start such a wonderful program. The mentors are awesome, dedicated and have helped me over the years in a variety of areas. When I get older, I definitely will come back to let the girls know that they are worth something because that is what Diamond In The Rough taught me. My life has been transformed and empowered because of my experience at Diamond In The Rough. -Faith M.

This is a wonderful organization that far exceeds the expectations the community places on them. The members that make up this organization are praying, professional and profound women. Anyone that is blessed to come in contact with or become a part of DITR is impacted in a positive manner.

I have been volunteering with the Diamond In The Rough Youth Development program for about 4 years.
I cannot begin to tell you how it has blessed me beyond my expectations. This organization has brought so
much awareness of what our young girls are facing physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I have seen
the lives of these young girls transformed as a result of being a part of the Diamond In The Rough Family.
This organization has truly created a safe environment for the girls to express themselves and not feel judged
instead they receive love, care, support, protection and knowledge. Each girl that comes into the program and
truly engage and participate will definitely become a precious diamond and their lives will never be the same.

Diamond In The Rough is by far the most rewarding organization that I've volunteered for. The Leaders of DITR are organized, creative and plan agendas that positively impact our young girls. Over the years they've partnered with other non-profits such as Partners Against Domestic Violence and local colleges to educate and empower our next generation of women. I look forward to volunteering every year!
