Beautiful Legacy offers young women an opportunity to work with a caring mentor to improve their ability to develop a positive attitude towards their future. It gives them a sense of hope and belonging that cannot be achieved through any other relationship. The long-term goal of the organization is to empower the young woman to think beyond her circumstances, make better choices, and take advantage of amazing opportunities. This will provide the young woman with a story that is always unfolding and never standing still. Beautiful Legacy will provide different types of mentoring programs that will each cater to different aspects of the young woman's life. The goal of the programs is to nurture the social, spiritual, financial, cultural, and developmental aspects of her life.
We use mentoring as a tool to guide, direct, and steer our girls on the right course. We use different forms of mentoring such as one-on-one, group, and peer-to-peer mentoring as a way of allowing each girl to experience different opportunities and circumstances. Each young lady is paired both with an adult mentor as well as a mentoring group that provides her with trusted confidants as well as accountability partners and a support system.
We teach leadership to our young women through education and hands on learning. We show them that being a leader is more than just being the boss and making the rules. We show them that a true leader inspires and motivates those around them and helps to make them better. We teach important leaderships skills such as communication, listening, problem solving, time management, critical thinking, how to delegate tasks, and work in groups.
Basic life skills are so important in this day and time. We help our girls to understand the importance of learning these basic life skills as well as show them how to use them in practical situations. Some of the skills we teach are financial responsibility such as opening a savings or checking account, balancing a checkbook, budgeting, and giving. We also teach cooking classes, car maintenance, cleaning, how to do laundry, etiquette, honoring commitments, and adaptability and acceptance of others. We aim to give each young lady the tools and resources she will need to have the most rewarding and fulfilling life possible.
