OUR MISSION

 

SELF LOVE.GOD’s LOVE.GIRL EMPOWERMENT FOR EVERY GIRL!

I L.O.V.E. ME is devoted to giving all teen girls the tools necessary to strengthening and developing their relationships with God, themselves and others. We provide and cultivate relationships through intentional and engaged mentorship and leadership programs with women leaders in the community. We build trust, confidence, and a sisterhood through our core programs and seminars. Our mission is simply to have every girl say and feel the words… I LOVE ME.

Who Are We

I Love Me was born out of the enthusiasm and determination of MyIsha Jordan to empower, educate, and inspire the uniqueness of all girls because the world around them rarely celebrates their remarkable and extraordinary strengths. I Love Me mentorship and empowerment program serves diverse young women, ages 13-19, and adult women mentors in the greater St. Louis metropolitan and Illinois area. Of current I Love Me youth, 95% are of color and 85% are from low-come backgrounds. I Love Me is led by all women-of-color currently, and we excel at creating meaningful engagement through culturally relevant programs supported by committed mentors. 

I Love Me educates and empowers young women of different races, culture, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, immigration status, physical ability, life experience, family status, and living circumstances. Our goal is to provide ACCESS to young women who often lack access to leadership programs. For us, this means, providing access to girls who are of color; from immigrant communities; from challenged economic backgrounds; and those identify as LGBTQ+.
