About Distinguished Young Women Foundation

Founded in 1958, Distinguished Young Women is a free program that encourages participants to reach their full individual potential. Our mission is to empower young women by providing over $1 billion in scholarship opportunities, developing their self-confidence in a positive peer environment and participating in our Life Skills Workshops that prepare them for success after high school.

“I loved learning so much so quickly, as I was involved in a wide spread of jobs for the program: • Coached and critiqued teenage girls in interview, public speaking, and self-image workshops. • Conceptualized appropriate themes and music selections for the program, and choreographed the routines for the competition. • Created and taught choreography for the participants of the subsequent Little Miss and Mr. GHS programs. • Organized a shoe drive that gathered 1,709 pairs of shoes to donate to the Dando Amor: Shoes for Love charity. • Featured on television and newspaper outlets and at public events to promote both Dando Amor and Distinguished Young Women.”
