I've had the honor of being a part of the Mademoiselles Organization since 2009 and I'm thankful for every lesson learned. I credit the Mademoiselles for guiding me on a path of a successful young woman. Each mentor of the alumnae has set the bar high on what I can accomplish in my career and how I can make a difference in my community. The Mademoiselles gives young women an opportunity to grow in areas that'll benefit them in the future. Regularly I think back to the business apparel tips or college advice given in workshops the Alumnae gave. During high school the Alumnae were the role models for me and now that I'm entering college & in a business setting, I can be the example to others. The Mademoiselles produces a great cycle of successful, determined young women. I'm proud to be member of this 52 year legacy.

The programs and events that the Mlles Alumnae provide are very empowering to the Houston community. From their Project Prom, City Wide Conferences, and Educational seminars, there is a wealth of knowledge for young women to use in their everyday lives.

MLLES ALUMNAE is a great organization that provides great opportunities to young ladies, as well as positive female role models. They host a variety of workshops and seminars including topic such as educational and health. I was apart of the Mademoiselles Social & Service Organization in HS. I'm glad to see the the traditions of community service and finer womanhood are being continued through the Alumnae Organization.

I began working with organization about four years ago and I can truly say that they are doing a great work! Many young ladies are on the right track now versus the road they were treading down toward mediocrity. They were given hope and now know that the circumstance in which they were born does not have to determine their future outcome. The sky is the limit and they are flying high :)

The MLLES Alumnae, Inc. was founded because of the significantly positive impact that the Mademoiselles organization had on the lives of its founders and other young ladies of color during their high school years.

When I joined the Mademoiselles Club in high school (circa 1996), I could
not even fathom the level of influence that it would have on my personal and professional growth. Being around such positive people, serving the community, being exposed to college life all over the country, holding leadership positions, and the list goes on thoroughly enhanced my high school and thus undergraduate and now graduate school careers.

Within the MLLES Alumnae, Inc., we cultivate even greater experiences for all of the Mademoiselles. We strive to ensure that the accomplishments of the young ladies of our future far outweigh our own. Through personal and professional development workshops and scholarships at our annual conferences, intermittent seminars when and where we see a need, and continual service and social events; we equip them with the knowledge and resources to succeed in all facets of life -- from public speaking to relationships to exercise and nutrition. It is our intention that each young lady not only leaves more confident and informed, but she is also positively infectious to her community and environment.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have been apart of the Mademoiselles organization since 1997. During my tenure as a high school student, I grew tremendously in self-development and leadership. So much so, that within my senior year, not only did I hold the position of President for the organization, but I was elected to serve on the Superintendent AdHOC committee for my school. This was a prestigious appointment where I became the voice of the entire school and relayed issues and concerns directly to the Superintendent for advancement of education and improvement of the community within the school.

These experiences transpired into more leadership opportunities throughout my college years and even into my adulthood. Now as an accomplished career person, author, motivational speaker, and mentor, I have made it my duty to give back to the organization in ways that continues to strengthen my character and charge me with an even greater responsibility: strengthening the pipeline that provided me a conduit to continued success.

I would like to see this organization continue to expand across the nation because the foundation and principals of the organization could empower more young people like myself. I realize that this will entail a lot of work and discipline on our part as leaders of the Alumnae sector, but I truly believe in the vision and I am living proof of it's many works. I credit this organization for being my foundation for developing into the young lady I am today and my greatest desire for this organization is to become a world-wide staple by which parents encourage their daughters to mimic and embrace.

Expand the organization in other areas outside of Greater Houston. I believe that the limited locations (14 chapters in Greater Houston) also limits it's greater impact.

Continue to recruit more alumnae so that we can grow in numbers and provide more activities and contributions back to the high school chapters. We are growing, but considering our long line of history, we could definitely reach out to even more people.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Absolutely. Due to this experience, I started a mentoring program where I mentor girls one-on-one throughout the country.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

It made me feel like I was doing something much greater than myself.

I became a member of this organization in 2003 and I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The Mademoiselles Social Club taught me most of my leadership and people skills that I use daily in my career. The MLLES Alumnae Inc. has even furthered those skills and my hidden talents through giving me the opportunity to work with some amazing people. The Mademoiselles organization was a vital part of my high school years and I was grateful for the opportunity to become a member then, and I am even more grateful for the opportunity to work with/for them now.

I would get more alumni to help with our fundraising and conference planning efforts. We do pretty well each year in those areas but the additional help would provide us the chance to increase scholarships and influence through manpower.

I have been committed to this organization for over 14 years. While The Mademoiselle Alumnae, Inc. began hosting conferences 7 years ago, the Mademoiselles student organization was founded in 1960 - creating a long lineage of leaders. I am honored to be a part of this movement.

As a member of the Mademoiselles in high school, I was thoroughly excited to learn that Shannan and Brandi had decided to start The MLLES Alumnae, Inc. to give back to an organization that helped them (and so many of us) become the women that we are today. Seven years ago, they created this non profit to build a culture of unit between every high school Mademoiselle chapter in Houston. The MLLES offers workshops to young ladies that help build their character, business saavy and people oriented skills. I look forward to every April to be a part of the great vision of this nonprofit organization. I love how current high school girls can connect and build relationships with former Mademoiselles. Aside from the conference, seminars are held throughout the school year to help continue to foster growth within the young ladies. On top of all this, young ladies are shown the importance of giving back to others through a variety of community service events. Every year the conferences and seminars are bigger and better and I can only imagine what great blessings await the future of this awesome organization!

If I could donate more time and resources to this organization I would. It is very difficult to extend a vision into a reality with minimal resources, but The MLLES Alumnae, Inc. works very hard to ensure our young ladies have all the resources they need to be successful in their lives.

A mademoiselle is what I wanna be! This Alumnae is so giving and so willing to focus on young women of all ethnic groups and diversities. Communities are in need of organizations that will dedicate their time, skills, and abilities to bettering the future of young adults.The great thing about Mlles Alumnae is it is ever changing to meet the constant needs of our young women. I encourage all mothers who care about the mind development of their young ladies to inquire more about this organization and its many benefits. We love you and keep up the good work MLLES ALUMNAE!!!

Becoming a part of the Mlles Alumnae is an excellent way to make a difference in the lives of young women in our community. We get the opportunity to talk, get to know, and positively influence the lives of high school girls as they enter into college and become women in society.
