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!”
