A Reflection of the Mission

The program’s ultimate mission is to inspire young ladies to take charge of opportunities and take advantage of the resources provided to them, timely. DIVAS was founded on the belief that everyone is capable of being successful despite their familial, environmental, and situational circumstances. Our founder firmly believes striving for academic excellence and restoring self-confidence is extremely beneficial in preparing young ladies for post-secondary education options and real-world scenarios.

The 5 Core Values are the crown jewel of DIVAS programming and serve as the foundation of our approach to training each of our mentees to apply practical tools in everyday life.
