Personal & Spiritual Growth

image7

A young lady's life journey has  many challenging components. Finding love in all the wrong places becomes comfort when one is not taught to love God 1st. 


We at DBF believe your spiritual walk has to start with internal healing and reflection. And to learn how to love/respect yourself. A pep talk, lunch reminder to always adjust their crowns and fulfil their day as queens!


"I have a past, But I don't have to live there anymore.."

Dinner & Dining Etiquette

image8

 The quality of a young lady knowing the importance of strong dining skills is very important. and it should come as no surprise that dining, unless done well, could be disastrous to your reputation. It is for this reason that second interviews are often conducted over a meal. How you conduct yourself at the table, under pressure with a mouthful of food, can either positively or negatively influence a business decision or personal reference or life decision.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS

Business Etiquette

image10

 Business etiquette is significant from the point of view of building rapport and a solid foundation within the business community. Good manners foster positive relationships and as people work with you they appreciate politeness and are more willing to enhance the relationships. Business etiquette is also about smooth communication skills – even if a young lady does not understand or too fluent in a particular language, communication will remain effective given the respect and trust between people. As a young lady she should always believe in and practices business etiquette. Practicing actively listening , provide constructive feedback, pay attention when someone speaks to them, is more likely to smile and make eye contact, speak clearly and avoid any language or words that could be misunderstood and display other such proper behaviours. 

Social & Public Speaking

image11

 Communication is the backbone of our society. It allows us to form connections, influence decisions, and motivate change. Without communication skills, the ability to progress in the working world and in life, itself, would be nearly impossible. 


Public speaking is one of the most important and most dreaded forms of communication. 


We always support our young ladies along the way and always have fun while they express themselves and be the best they can be!! 

BECOMING AN ENTREPRENEUR

image12

 Being successful often means learning from those who have already achieved their goals. Having a mentor is an amazing blessing to an entrepreneur, but not everyone can find one in person. If you haven't yet found your personal business mentor, we have personalized tips for young or aspiring entrepreneurs to help get you started. 


 A young entrepreneur is someone who fails. However does not give up. She is stubborn, resilient and driven. There are many young women who has talents and may not know that they can be transformed in a business.  younger than you are now, that succeeded, but that shouldn't make you feel like a failure. It should serve as motivation. 


We constantly hear about all these young entrepreneurs that succeeded, but we don't hear about that much bigger number that failed many times. Some of them eventually succeed, some of them never will. Those who have succeeded have done so because they learned from their experiences, they learned from all those failed attempts. Embrace failures because you learn from them.

Divas Donation Kloset & Boutique

Affordable Fashions 4 Flourishing Females

 

As growing girls, it is important to be able to present yourself with class and confidence. Sometimes one can feel discouraged to go to school, search for a job, or just be themselves, if they can't afford clean and presentable clothing. We take for granted that we have different looks to choose from every day. There are many young girls that aren't that fortunate.

​We seek donations of clothes that are new or gently used. Such as: coats, shirts, dresses, suits and everyday clothing. We would like to gain sponsorship in areas of providing affordable diaper packages to young mothers, clean undergarments, personal hygiene items and bus tokens/passes to help those who will need transportation to school, interviews, work etc.

This will not be only be a thrift store boutique, but an "empowerment center". Where we would have  computers stationed to help assist with resumes, job search and housing search. Also a place to conduct many motivational speaking and community events. ©

At Diva's Build Futures, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing change in our female community by being an assistance to the clothing & hygiene needs of our girls.  


Your Donation
​Drop-Off /Pick-up is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support. Please email us to schedule a pickup or see when the next drop off location and date will be.
