Benefits of Precious Miss for your Precious Miss


of the participants are able to identify the characteristics (Honesty, Forgiveness, Communication, Boundaries, and Integrity) needed to build positive and healthy relationships

Led by African American women, this all-girl program was designed to guide young ladies, in grades 6-8, through a process of self-awareness and enlightenment. By participating in various interactive modules, we aim to increase self-esteem, develop a better understanding of self-worth and to explore character traits which may heighten or hinder the pursuit of excellence. Together, Precious Miss participants will explore friendships and relationships, develop a positive body image and learn about the importance of education and Indianapolis Youth Development.

All young women are encouraged to recite the following Precious Miss pledge weekly as a reminder of their importance and value to society and themselves:

“I am…cherished, beloved, adored and dear.
I am…held in great esteem with admirable qualities.
I am…of great worth and valuable.
I am…not to be wasted and to be treated with care.
I am…highly valued, much loved and considered to be of great importance.
I am a Precious Miss!”
