Our Mission, Our Vision

Our mission is to encourage, empower, and equip girls to be holistically healthy and strong: educationally, emotionally, socially, and physically.

Our vision is to see confident, healthy, holistic girls who fulfill their maximum potential in every area of their lives. The Ladies of Distinction Program is WIT’s largest program serving over 600 girls and 22 schools throughout Hampton Roads and Western Tidewater, Virginia. L.O.D. helps young ladies discover and operate in their full potential with consistent meetings and open and honest dialogue. Using our curriculum, meetings are focused on holistic health. Topics include: Developing and maintaining high self-esteem, healthy relationships, setting goals, overcoming obstacles, and living healthy lifestyles. LEARN MORE ABOUT L.O.D.
