DIAMONDS OF DISTINCTION
July 8, 2011

I love volunteering with this organization! The women are very friendly and inviting. Everyone is dedicated to empowering themselves and those around them. There is a lot of potential for this organization to grow and develop since they are grassroots.

I would love to see more empowerment and mentorship classes/forums for adult women in the community. Maybe a quarterly book club or movie night would bring women together to discuss the issues that impact not only or daughters, but us as well.

The Great!

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

Volunteering in the Sparkle Mentorship Program has allowed me to make a noticeable impact on young girls lives. I see them asking questions and making better informed decisions.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add more bonding/social opportunities that allow for open, honest discussion between the ladies of the Diamonds of Distinction because it is so effective when used in the mentorship program.
