My daughter was able to participate in the program in 2017. We had participated in a girls empowerment group before but was fortunate enough to be referred to EWOE. This program far exceeded our expectations. The workshops and activities are worthwhile and meaningful for what kids are experiencing today. EWOE helps girls to develop a great outlook and vision for what their future might look like. For many girls, including my own this positive experience will definitely help to shape who she will become. These girls end the program more with more insight, more polished, more encouraged and end up being beacons of light for other girls their age to follow. The girls develop lasting relationships with the diverse group of EWOE and with the wonderful leaders. I cannot think of a better organization for girls than this group and look forward to my other 2 daughters participating in the years to come!
Amazing Non-profit organization that helps guide young girls on the correct path to a prosperous future!
Exceptional staff, well designed workshops and relative topics.
"Thank you" seems inadequate when I reflect on the passion with which EWOE staff and partners present alternatives to some of life's toughest choices the young women of EWOE will face. More times than not, the young ladies have heard the same information from their parents, family, or friends. Some graduates may even falter after completing the program; however, I am certain that the friendships developed and the tools learned are consistent reminders and reinforcement for the participants as they make their contributions to society. I am appreciative of the partnership formed with parents to aid in the successful transition into Womanhood. YOU'RE THE BEST! Parent of Jr./Sr. EWOE Participant 2009-2011
EWOE is an AWESOME mentoring program. Two of my girls have gone through the program. It reinforced what was taught at home. Mrs. Lisa and Mrs. Delise are loving and passionate about the girls and their development.
EWOE is an incredible example of an organization that goes above and beyond to pour into the next generation. They have programs, events and opportunities for teenage girls that meet them right where they are with opportunities to talk about relevant issues to their lives and to understand the power of their choices both in the present and the future. EWOE provides safe settings for the girls to grow and learn and ask questions and have sweet fellowship as they navigate through the teen years. EWOE provides workshops on everything from sexual health choices to preparing for SATs (and much more) and each workshop is done in such a way that the girls make new friendships, have the freedom to ask any questions, enjoy guest speakers and walk away being encouraged, empowered and edified. This Christ-centered organization is an incredible gift to the parents as well, as parents see the fruit of their teens' time from every EWOE event. These girls make friendships that will last a life time and are empowered to make life impacting healthy choices and prepared for the years after highschool. EWOE equips and gives these girls a strong foundation from which to build. I cannot say enough about this incredible organization. I wish every teenage girl had the opportunity to be involved with EWOE. These girls walk away with confidence, skills, new friendships and more that they take with them the rest of their lives. This is an outstanding, Christ-centered organization that does all with HIS love, integrity, passion and excellence to pour into each girl who is involved. EWOE is investing in, equipping, and engaging our teen girls. Girls grow in their relationship with Jesus and learn their identity is in Him and that each girl is a treasure and of priceless value.
Elite Women of Excellence is an incredible program for young girls in middle school and high school. I'm so happy I put my girls in this program. I see what beautiful young Godly women they have become and I can't help but think that E.W.O.E. had a major part in that. The world needs more programs like this who instill virtue, purity, life skills & God's word.
Amazing program. I can't say enough good things!
EWOE is one of the best teen mentoring programs of its kind. They believe in value and building foundation while teaching young girls how to become virtuous women. I have friends that have sons and they are in desperate need of a program such as this. I believe that with more donations, volunteers and support this program can and will expand to fit the needs of all youth. So Thankful for the christian values!
Lisa, and the Elite Women of Excellence (EWOE), began working with the female participants of our ministry sometime in 2010. Over the years, they have poured into our girls' lives both academically and spiritually. One of the resources provided by EWOE, was the SAT prep program. Our young women received FREE SAT prep, that prepared them for the actual SAT exam. One of program participants took the PSAT - prior to participating in the SAT prep classes, offered by Lisa and her staff - and received a total score of 960 (including the writing portion of the exam). Exactly one (1) year later - after participating in EWOE's SAT Prep Program - that same young woman received a score of 1363 (including the writing portion). The increase of 403 points allowed her to be accepted into one of Tennessee's top universities.

Our daughter participated in the Elite Women of Excellence (EWOE) leadership, and mentoring program for the last four years. The EWOE Program is a catalyst for transformation in the lives of young women encouraging a holistic vision for success.
What a priceless Gem!
Examples of pearls of wisdom shared during the EWOE Program from various facilitators:
FOCUS - Finish Our Commitment Unapologetically Stronger.
Fear is a choice that is debilitating
Self-worth and beauty can be echoed from moms to our daughters-so what"s your beauty legacy?
WORDS- 4 Agreements we make with ourselves:
Be Impeccable with your Words,
Personal (don't take anything personally - it frees me),
Don't Make Assumptions - find the Courage to ask the question
Best - always do your best
Mere words, simply cannot express our sincere and heart felt appreciation to the EWOE Family for your time, efforts, energy, and commitment modeled throughout our four years with this Program!
This will be my daughters 4th year participating in EWOE and I couldn't be more excited. The program provides a platform for young ladies to develop lifelong relationships while gaining tools to assist them in living righteously. The monthly workshops equip them with strategies to combat the peer pressure many are faced with daily.
The young ladies also have the opportunity to give back by participating in monthly community service projects. EWOE is not your usual girls organization. They have a unique and highly effective program that would be beneficial to all young ladies.
I was a participant in the program in 2003. The program influenced me on such a profound way that I have been a volunteer with them since 2005. They are a great influence on teenage girls. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to participate!
I've been a member of this program since 2008 I believe. I completed the Junior Elite Program and then went on to complete the Senior Elite program during high school. This was such a great experience for me because I met other like-minded young ladies that needed support from great mentors. This program instilled so many positive values in me that I still use today as an adult. I believe EWOE laid the foundation for me to be a strong yet, God-fearing woman of this time. I'm always thinking about my neighbor, never walking out on my values, and trying to instill positive values in the children I work with today. This is a truly stellar program!
Outstanding and life changing for both the student and family!
I "graduated" from the Elite Women of Excellence Senior Elite Program in 2007 and started volunteering after.
The values that are shared with the young women are important for any young woman to understand. The focus on healthy relationships, self worth, family relationships, goal setting, and career/career planning have helped me immensely since completing the program almost 10 years ago. The executive team, board of directors, staff, and volunteers have a passion for the young women that are enrolled in the programs.
I recommend this program to any young woman who wants to live a little set apart from what everyone else is doing.
I heard about this program a few years before I "encouraged" my daughters to apply and I am so glad I did. I cannot express my sincere gratitude for this organization and the impact it has had on both of my daughters. The workshops, for both the junior and senior elite programs, have been invaluable. Everything from the workshops, etiquette classes, purity ceremony with their fathers, and the cotillion has been wonderful. I feel my daughters have been extremely blessed to have taken part in the EWOE gram
I have been around EWOE since it started and have benefited with my own daughter. EWOE’s focus is to send young women out into the world prepared for success, knowing that they have value and that they can achieve their goals and aspirations. The focus is on the future, emphasizing that the choices that they make today could possibly affect their goals and dreams. The girls are equipped with the necessary skills to make good choices regarding their sexual, physical, and emotional health. Communication skills are taught so that the relationships in the participant’s life can be mended and enriched. EWOE has committed professional leadership that seeks to make the participant’s experience one that will benefit her and stay with her long after her time in the program.
My husband and I have had 3 daughters successfully complete the EWOE mentoring program. Each daughter came away with a new appreciation for what their future goals are and opportunities to determine if that is their true career desire. The program takes a young woman from etiquette and career planning to a beautiful cotillion that focuses on fostering a close father-daughter relationship. The time our daughters spent with their (already great) father will be an important memory as they move into adulthood. Our participation was truly worth every workshop and dance practice for our family and we highly recommend your participation!
Both of my daughters had the pleasure of being involved in Elite Women of Excellence from middle school thru high school. The workshops they attended covered a broad range of topics that teen girls need to be exposed to - abstinence, career planning, budgeting and personality assessment to name just a few. Workshops are hosted by professionals as well as alumni, both of which did a fabulous job of connecting with my daughters. The mother /daughter retreat and the father /daughter vow of purity dinner provided an unbelievably blessed time for each parent with their daughter. The girls also participated in a variety of service projects during each year of the program. I personally haven't seen any other program like this for teen girls in the Atlanta area.
EWOE has an excellent concept and great resources for girls. Their program is designed to help mold them into young phenomenal women of substance. My daughter is fairly new to the program and we are looking forward to growing with EWOW... So far we enjoy and like what we see!
EWOE is positively impacting the lives or young women and families across the greater Atlanta area.
I have volunteered with the organization for over ten years; I have experienced firsthand the power positive and intentional influence. Girls are learning the principle of “sowing with a view towards heaven” in making positive choices that impact their lives for the short and long term.
I enthusiastically recommend the organization as a premier mentoring for success program.
