The PYS Inc., Divine Divas Program works closely with young women, ages 14-21, to develop and refine their leadership skills while learning the principles of teamwork. This program also encourages them to develop productive ways of spending their free time and the importance of giving back to their communities by identifying, organizing and implementing various community services projects.
Through this program we:
- Challenge participants to examine their personal strengths and weaknesses through creating a platform for them to flourish as young leaders;
- Explore and examine influential female leaders in all facets of society in order to discuss leadership qualities;
- Examine how the portrayal of women of color in the media affects females in the community and identify community service projects that target specific issues; &
- Provide opportunities for young women to exhibit leadership in the community through the development of community service projects working with the youth, the elderly, and/or homeless population(s).
