Vision, Mission, Guiding Principles

Our Vision

Provide support and opportunities for women to develop themselves as confident, professionally-equipped, and passionate and to lead organizations, businesses, schools, and agencies domestically and internationally.


Our Mission

Provide women in the community with opportunities, positive exposure, and mentorship to develop them into socially-conscious global leaders.


Our Guiding Principles

We carry out our mission through the guiding principles of Power, Purpose, and Platform.

Power: Self-esteem and self-efficacy development

Through self-esteem development, young women build this foundational factor that impacts their drive and persistence of behavior. In growing to love and believe in themselves they are more inclined to be confident and receptive to leadership opportunities.

Purpose: Leadership training and Mentorship

In the development of leadership skills and mentorship, girls gain the ability and conviction to become principled leaders. Developing this skill set and providing opportunities to practice leading, girls grow to become women who lead in school, work, and their community.

Platform: Travel seminars and International Exposure

The travel seminar expands women’s expectations, self-efficacy, and global view thus lighting a new path of potential outcomes for their life. Women also develop as citizens who value diversity, challenge bias and have a passion for continual learning through experience.
