Vickie Madison, founder of Excellence Girls Club appears on this weeks' show to discuss how the EGC is helping girls across Hampton Roads. More on this 757 non-profit below!
Excellence Girls' Club, Inc. seeks out middle and high school-age girls who display untapped academic and leadership potential. Members enjoy mother-daughter meetings, field trips and college tours, book discussions, weekly educational sessions and a monthly Leadership Institute. They volunteer for community service projects and an annual advocacy project to learn the value of contributing to society. At our annual bonding retreat, we celebrate the growth we've experienced.
When I think of EGC, the word that comes to mind is sisterhood.
A sisterhood that is often taunted, but ultimately cannot be broken.
A sisterhood filled with honesty, confidence and spared feelings.
A sisterhood that's filled with strong minded young women, not naïve little girls.
A sisterhood that means we like your perfections, but love your flaws.
A sisterhood filled with love and gratitude.
A sisterhood that means YOU + ME = UNITY
