Let Your Light Shine 2019

Let Your Light Shine is a program that provides information, tools and guidance to inner city girls, as well as, women from all walks of life. The 2nd annual LYLS Program will take place Saturday, April 13th, 2019. Our mission is to help women, identify their God-given purpose, to lead impactful lives that influence positive change within their lives, families and communities.

As many of us are aware, there is a major gap in quality education, school programs, job prospects and opportunities in lower income neighborhoods in comparison to middle and upper class neighborhoods. According to the “National Center for Children in Poverty,” 42% of children born to parents in the lowest economic stratification will remain in the bottom strata as adults. This is a huge problem!

With the money donated, we want to create a positive atmosphere that inspires a new vision and a new story for our women to tell. LYLS 2019 will include motivational speakers, small group breakout sessions, resources for summer internships and programs that enhance personal, academic and professional development. We understand the pivotal role creativity plays in our lives, so we have incorporated live performances, painting, dance and more.

Please join me in making this an unforgettable event and thank you in advance for all your support!!!
