The Village Mirror is a mentoring program designed to help develop youth for today’s modern world, by creating confidence through etiquette and self-development skills. Allowing our youth to conduct themselves in the modern world with confidence.
On September 23, 2017, The Village Mirror Etiquette Program had their launch event at Studio On Market on 219 N Market Street in Wilmington, DE. The event was hosted by Aurelia Lyles, Founder of The Village Mirror Etiquette Program with special guest Angelo Ellerbee of Double XXposure Media Relations. The attendees included members of the Delaware Futures Students program, a few young ladies from the community, the program's business advisor Audrey Scott-Hynson, program assistant Aubria Nance-Phillips and a few guardians/parents.
What is so amazing about the launch event was the fact our "village mindset" allowed us to achieve what some thought was impossible. Each young lady who attended the event was sponsored by an adult they didn't know. Amos Wilson wrote, "A people must trust, be dependable, have respect for each other if they are to develop a viable economic system. When they have those kinds of relationships they have a social system, they can build, and they grow economically." Which is what we have been experiencing since we started putting the word out about our program, a building of relationships--making a stronger community. I am super excited to announce that we will be collaborating with The Breaking Barriers Fitness Center owned by Dwayne Adams, for future events.
Our next event will be on November 18, 2017, at Breaking Barriers, located at 503 Hawley Street in Wilmington, DE, and once again we are asking the community to join us to help our youth learn some valuable tools to help them as they move into the future with confidence. We will be attaching an event link with more information and details shortly.
