About this Program
In 1958, only twelve years in the evolution of our organization, under the leadership of President Pauline Maloney, the national assembly adopted the first program facet, Educating for Democracy, which later became Services to Youth. The objective of this program facet provides programs, opportunities and exposure for minority youth to help them aspire and fulfil their full potential.
It's A Girl's Life
In 2006, the Memphis (TN) Chapter began its signature program – It’s A Girls Life – with the goal of positively impacting teen pregnancy, domestic abuse, high-school drop out rates and teenage obesity. Through this strategic and multi-year program, dedicated chapter members help facilitate academic and social coaching, mentoring and recognition throughout these young women's secondary and post-secondary education.
