Workshops, Trainings and Offerings
The goal of this program is to assist young women identify and prepare to obtain their life goals by helping them:

Develop Inner Value to Acquire Success!

The Nellie Prather Foundation offers a full semester (18 week), series of workshops for young, urban, socio-economically challenged girls, in the Chicago metro area, titled the "Lady DIVA Program."

Each segment of this series is comprised of multiple, 2-3 hour workshops and activities. In each segment there are workshops exclusively for the youth participants, the instructional staff and parents. The workshop/activities are divided into four major categories termed: 1) Dynamic, 2) Inspiring, 3) Virtuous and 4) Awesome.

All workshops are conducted by either certified educators and/or trainers with expertise in one or more disciplines or segments in the series.

Each of the workshops and activities include opportunities for girls to discuss and dialogue about their own personal issues and views.

The workshops and activities are designed to create a "safe" atmosphere for girls to express what they are thinking and feeling. While their thoughts and feelings may be acknowledged, there is also equal emphasis placed on choices and consequences thereof.

This is done in an effort to assist in facilitating change in their overall view of their options and opportunities.

The DIVA Review: As schools complete the semester long program, we offer continuing support with the "DIVA Review."

The DIVA Review continues with the progress made with each group of girls on a monthly basis, for maintenance purposes, after the DIVA program has been completed.

The DIVA Review support team visits schools monthly for 2-3 hour follow up workshops and in-school activities.

The Nellie Prather Foundations mission is to serve young women as a vehicle for learning and development through assistance programs, experiential education, instructural partnering,  technology,  counseling and mentoring.
