Elite Women of Excellence comes alongside teen girls to help them discover their purpose and passion, support the making of moral choices through biblical principles, strengthen family relationships, develop a foundation of confidence, and provide an environment where they can experience the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.
EWOE welcomes girls of all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds and its programs are developed with three areas in mind:
Care & Compassion
EWOE provides a safe space for hard conversations in a judgement-free zone, and the environment is one of intentional connection. We aim to help girls and parents be more strategic in their relationships and unconditional in their love.
Focused on healthy dating relationships, improved communication, positive parental engagement, and education beyond high school, EWOE has a wide variety of programs for teen girls. Many are open to anyone, while some are available by application only. All our programs are designed to help teen girls draw their own conclusions and aspire to live a life that pleases God.
Junior Elite Program
EWOE’s Junior Elite Program is for middle school girls in grades 7-8 and lays the foundation for developing self-confidence.
The faith-based program meets through the school year and offers workshops, activities, and events on a wide variety of topics such as dining and business etiquette, self-defense, social media, body image, hygiene and hair care, plus more.
Senior Elite Program
EWOE’s Senior Elite Program is for high school girls in grades 9-12 and offers workshops, activities, and events that foster the development of principles, passion and purpose.
College & Career
The Senior Elite Program meets throughout the year and gives girls the tools to grow into healthy, well-rounded young women. Sample program topics include mock interviews, networking events, dating, and sexual risk avoidance. Participants are also involved in community service activities and organize their own event to extend compassion and caring as a demonstration of biblical stewardship.
EWOE’s Senior Elite Program produces confident teen girls who are equipped to make wise decisions and live a life of least regrets.
Elite Women of Excellence partners with other youth-serving organizations to provide a series of monthly Lunch & Learn sessions for girls in grades 7–12.
Our partner programs are staffed by volunteers who facilitate workshops aimed at enhancing decision-making skills and informing life choices. The aim is to help teen girls understand how present behaviors can influence future goals and plans–and ultimately, to break the cycle of poverty and to reduce teen pregnancy, truancy, and the high school drop-out rate.
City of Refuge Level Up Youth Ministry, Atlanta, GA
Cotillion is EWOE’s most intensive program, spanning nine months and focused on personal growth and development. This exclusive program is for girls dedicated to self-improvement and is more than a typical peer group or youth development program. It’s truly a sisterhood marked by lifelong friendships.
We are always intentional about exposing teen girls to biblical principles, encouraging positive self-worth, and inspiring a desire to honor God with their bodies, souls, and spirits, but the Cotillion program is a pinnacle experience where Elite Women of Excellence walks alongside participants as they discover their passions, their pathways, their source of power, and their guiding principles.
The annual program culminates with a special event marked by formal white gowns, elegant hairstyles, choreographed minuets, and graceful waltzes. On this special night, the girls are presented as confident young women who are well positioned to operate in their full potential for making positive choices, influencing society, engaging in their communities, and achieving personal goals.
Our year-round calendar of workshops, conferences, and events helps build self-awareness for girls and their families. Each event is designed to engage middle and high school girls in spiritual, relational, and personal growth.
Some of our most well-received events have been our career-readiness workshops, “Heart to Heart” Valentine’s event for girls and their fathers, Bible study, as well as special events and workshops, designed to help parents understand teen sex trends and learn how to make talking about sex with their daughters, easy, factual, and fun.
We also offer retreats for students and their parents (or guardians), providing a healthy environment for family bonding and open communication regarding goals, forgiveness, purity, self-worth and expressing love.
