Mission and Vision Statement
Our mission is to train girls to be effective leaders, caring citizens, and self-aware of themselves and their communities.
Our vision is to be a world class organization that builds girls of confidence and character using their voices and talents to make the world a better place!
Leading Ladies of Legacy was founded under four principles.
Moral or ethical quality
Qualities of honesty, courage or the like
We are a challenging and supportive group of girls, ladies, and women who are developing character. We lay the foundation for ourselves. Through character development we unlock our unique potential. We learn to utilize our intellectual, emotional, and spiritual resources.
Act of acquiring knowledge
Developing the powers to judgment and preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life
The most important thing we can obtain in this world is knowledge. Knowledge comes in many forms through schooling, reading, talking, and experiencing. We will challenge and expose our members to knowledge and develop inquiry skills.
Ability to lead, guide or direct
As a leader we help others to learn just as we have been helped. We ask the best of others just as someone shaped the best in us.
An act of helpful activity, help; aid
“I hear-and I forget
I see- and I remember
But I do-and I understand”
The pursuit of destiny requires our true best and our true best cannot be attained without the help of others. Active service helps us to understand others, our community, and ourselves.
