A Youth Developmental
Our founder created polish to be a support system for girls in various stages throughout their adolescence to adulthood. She saw a need to create an organization similar to that of a college sorority with the ability to get involved early on. Because college or pledging isn't a fit for every girl, P.O.L.i.S.H. was created to mimic those sorority styles of sisterhood and comradery. Affording girls, from all walks of life the opportunity to create & foster strong, positive bonds that can last a lifetime, with the girls they meet throughout the programs that carryover into adulthood.
Our mission is to dedicate ourselves to mentor teenage girls through sisterly interactions, creating life experiences together and empowering them to walk into their own unique gifts and talents. In a group setting and/or group outings we will help create and foster these strong positive bonds. We will build on self esteem, leadership skills, and professionalism; while striving to bring out the uniqueness in all. We will offer a sense of security and connection; bonding in SISTERHOOD.
Why the Name POLiSH?
: to make (something) smooth and shiny by rubbing it
:to improve (something); to make better than it was before
Pearls are symbolic of Transition. Charity, Honesty, Wisdom and Integrity.
Polish has chosen the pearl as our sole piece of jewelry of choice for the ladies to wear during our cotillion. Our cotillion will celebrate those young ladies coming of age(16)and their completion of the program.
*They remind us to walk with dignity.

Why the small 'i' in the name P.O.L.i.S.H.?
In our organization emphasis is placed on "i" (the individual) to display our individual uniqueness amongst our peers.
We strive to aid each young lady in discovering and strengthening their sense of pride in their identities and uniqueness.
Our uniqueness is a strength, not a weakness!
We want to aid our girls into self identifying and discovering what makes them who they are. This allows them to find their lanes or create one for themselves. This also sets them up for personal growth and a feeling of meaningfulness in life.
