Precious Me Inc. is a phenomenal organization for young girls trying to find their way in life! Two of my girls have been with PMI since its beginnings and it is so rewarding to see how this nonprofit organization (these Christian woman) has helped them with self worth, building character, positive reinforcement, sculpting personalities and so much more. It truly takes a village to raise stable minded children in this tainted world we live in today and PMI has been our village!
I am so excited to have my youngest daughter joining the group this year... that is 3 of my 4 daughters in the PMI family. I could only wish that they were around when my oldest was growing up.
Thank you Precious Me Inc. for all you do and all you will do to help shape our young ladies into women of integrity!

Precious Me Inc (PMI) is an amazing organization! Since my daughter has been apart of PMI, she has learned the important values of both teamwork and self reliance to do her best in all that she does. It gave her a sense of identity an continues to open her views on lifestyle issues.

I have learned so much from Precious Me Inc., I have grown from a young girl in middle school to a young adult, now, a senior. One of the things we learn that I thought I knew were table manners/table setting. That can be so very important if you’re at an important event or even just a dinner with friends. I gained experience with a lot of community service activities and bonding with people outside of my normal range of people. I love this organization and everything it stands for!

Being a mentor with Precious Me, Inc., has been extremely inspiring to see how so much effort, thought, prayer, and professionalism is put into the unceasing goal of encouraging and lifting up girls, young ladies, and those that mentor them. I have mentored for over 30 years now, in groups such as well as on my own; personally, professionally, via family inclusive of my own children. I have learned so much about the journey of our young people thru PMI.

When I was a child, picking an older friend in the neighborhood was some of the earliest ways that I was 'exposed' to mentoring; 'Play Mama' or other such names, as well as family elders. They shared all the wisdom they had, and that along with various other more 'mentor directed' formats helped to encourage and shape me. However, it's been a different ballgame for many years now. We're in a world that gets influences to our children from the world, not just the neighborhood. And if you are getting bullied, it's not just the kid around the block that you can possibly avoid by walking a different way, it's non-stop social media or people in your environment that are influenced by that media to bully you. Sometimes the inability to get to that ear that can hear without judgment or punishment is only that mentor...

The goal is to use what we're getting trained in, as well as the character that has carefully been examined to be that extension of encouragement to them. Yes, it takes time and patience usually, but in a world of young people that generally don't have strong or positive communication skills for interacting with others, it's just part of the journey. If we're only able to help them get thru 1 thing in life a little easier and with a little less pain, we count it a blessing.

PMI, helps to give me more tools and structure to do what my heart already wants to do... be part of a positive village... be a mentor. If we're/you're not a part of the answer, or we/you a part of the problem?

Working alongside Precious Me is such a blessing. We are able to witness the growth of the girls in the program as they build their confidence and self-esteem, change their mindsets of the way they view themselves, and truly embody the meaning of self-love. Our Mentors are passionate about forming relationships with their Mentees, understanding the value of these relationships in a teens life. The Mentors are truly a “guide by the side” to help answer those tough questions but also to be a listening ear to a young girl who needs it. Precious Me operates through multiple workshops, Mentor and Mentee events and more! Looking to become a Mentor? Join Precious Me to change a life :) Are you a parent who is interested in your daughter receiving guidance and love from a Mentor? Join our family!

My daughter joined Precious Me at the onset of the organization. She has blossomed into a wonderful young woman as a result! The mentors and leadership teams are amazing! It truly takes a village to raise children! I thank
God for the village in which I have!!

The girls learn life skills, attend college tours, workshops, and array of activities. My daughter has learned about sisterhood, managing finances, and how to prepare a resume just to name a few things.

Through the Precious Me organization, I am surviving the teenage years!

I have volunteered with PMI throughout the years and the growth in these young ladies and the organization has been tremendous. They obtain workable tools, skills, and solutions for life. Most importantly, they are surrounded by administrators that truly have a passion for youth development. Today's youth are exposed to much more than generations before. I have seen first hand that PMI is well equipped to handle it all! It is evident that these young ladies possess a higher level of self confidence from knowing they have a competent and caring support system. I would encourage families to support and enroll their daughter in PMI. It's so important to combat the negativity our young ladies face today with a safe and postive environment that helps foster their growth and development!!

I have had the pleasure of working with Precious Me Inc. for the last five years, the last 4 as Mentor Coordinator. The commitment of the Leadership team and Mentors to making a difference in the lives the girls is tremendous! The Enrichment workshops deal with topics relevant to what's going on in their world daily: Self-esteem, Character, Self-Care, Future Planning, an so many more... Coupled with fun group outings, Mentors walking with and talking to them, College Tours, Compassion and Anti-Bullying initiatives and so much more.... I have seen many of these young ladies evolve into confident, well spoken, civilly aware young women!! The vision is focused, the execution organized and fluid, constantly evolving to stay relevant and it shows in the success we've seen. Got a MS or HS girl in your life?? Precious Me is an awesome group and experience for her to develop and blossom into her very best self while being a part of a wonderful community!! Check us out, you'll be glad you did!

Precious Me Inc. came into our lives at a critical moment. My daughter was in her first year of high school and I didn’t always know how to deal with her day to day conflicts and emotional ups and downs. She was immediately paired up with a mentor. We all got to meet over dinner and quickly realized it was a perfect match. Her mentor took her to various places around the city and really took the time to get to know her. They went out to lunch, nail salons etc. My daughter knew she had another adult to talk to if she felt she couldn’t talk to me. The Precious Me Saturday seminars were engaging and informative to the all the girls in attendance. I was able to witness a few sessions myself and even participate in a Mommy and Me brunch. One of the best things about Precious Me is the college tours. I was able to chaperone a college tour out of town. The girls were so well behaved and really enjoyed the colleges we traveled to. Precious Me Inc gives young girls another outlook on life, a better perspective, more options, and the hope for a brighter future!
