Virtue Program

The Program
Virtuous Gems is a spiritual and social representation of the 12 precious stones God placed in Aaron's Breastplate (Exodus 28). This organization innovatively uses historical elements from Aaron's Breastplate and the 12 tribes of Israel as a means to build a compelling and significant spiritual infrastructure. Only initiating 12 girls per admission period, each girl represents a precious stone (aka virtuous gem) and tribe, placed in order by their birthdates. MORE

 

The Structure
It is our goal that this program will successfully provide life skills training for young ladies ages 13-18.
