The women of MLLES Alumnae represent greatness at the highest level. They spend their time all year, each year and have for the past ten years mentoring young high school girls in the Houston area. An informative and meaningful conference is held each year, fundraisers are held throughout the year, and the members of MLLES Alumnae also support the successes of the young girls by attending their functions and encouraging them to reach their highest goals.

I truly hope the high school girls who have received and are still receiving the gift of dedication from the MLLES Alumnae understand how fortunate they are. I donate to the organization each year, because seeing young women devote their time and efforts unselfishly warms my heart. I commend them.

Every year I am more amazed at the work of this organization and the lives that are touched! These women work endlessly to fund-raise for young women, empower young women, and educate young women. Even though I have been blessed to volunteer for so many years, I am always walking away with a little nugget for myself. The MLLES Alumnae is going above and beyond, with the charge of changing lives!

I was a member of the Mademoiselles, my sophomore year of high school. I was put into leadership roles, that I did not think I would be able to fulfill, but this organization gave me everything that I needed to succeed. I honestly do not think I would have developed leadership and planning skills had it not been for the Mademoiselles. I began to volunteer for the organization during my sophomore year of undergraduate studies in 2007 and it was one of the best decisions and greatest way to use my time, ever.

Mademoiselles Alumnae have been giving back to not only the women, but also, the community in general since 1960. I'm a current member of the Mademoiselle's organization and I can't wait to be apart of the alumnae. The impact that they make on the community shadows the impact that they have on us as young women trying to be successful and charitable.

This organization goes above and beyond to help serve young women. I joined Mademoiselles when I was a sophomore in high school and it has given me tools I needed to succeed. From professionalism to serving, I have learned so much that I have utilized all throughout college and currently in my professional career. As an alum, I have had the pleasure to watch how this organization grow and cultivate young women and it has been a pleasure to be a part of that initiative.

As a current sophomore college student, I cannot express how important the Mademoiselles organization was to me. Being part of this organization really made me grow personally, mentally but most importantly professionally. Everything that I learned from them has been applied more than once in my college career and I know that it will continue to serve me for many more years to come.

As a member of the Alumnae we give back to the organization various ways throughout each school year. From volunteering with the chapters for community service, fundraising for the organization, having one on one conversations with Mademoiselles, etc. The Alumnae consist of a great network of women, among us there are doctors, lawyers, educators, engineers, entrepreneurs, just to name a few.

As a Mademoiselle in high school I remember attending the conference and thinking one day I will be apart of the Alumnae. Today I am proud to be a member of the Alumnae and to be able to help some many young women.

As a Mademoiselle, I can honestly say that I have become a mature young lady who takes pride in calling these girls family. I have done many things that involved me helping out in my community with this organization and I plan on doing many more. :)

As a community worker, I am highly impressed with the work of the Mlles Alumnae organization. I have been following them for over 10 years and can say without a doubt that they have been consistent, hard working and very effective with their target population of high school females. They are in touch with the needs of teenage girls and young women and stay abreast of the current issues that affect them. Their activities are educational and fun therefore they get lots of involvement from the community. I applaud them for their efforts and look forward to being a part of future programming.
