Congratulations to our CEO/Founder Jan for being crowned Mrs. Palmetto Pride Plus America 2018. Jan's platform is to bring awareness to MSK and her project, "Crowns in Communities" initiative to demonstrate the fact that pageantry is "more than a pretty face, sash, and crown." The "Crowns in Communities" initiative connects "beauty queens" from all sectors including high school queens, festival queens and of course local, state and national titleholders to collectively host a project that will empower their community. The 2018 "Crowns in Communities" initiative is Backpacks for K.I.D.S.
Backpacks for K.I.D.S (Kids In Domestic Situations) is a campaign to fill backpacks with personal toiletries, motivational tools, and school supplies. The backpacks will be distributed to youth in foster care kinship care or any domestic relations situations including juvenile delinquency.
In 2010, the North America Heritage competition was organized as a developmental leadership program to provide young women the opportunity to showcase their talent, develop their leadership and social decorum skills while promoting a social issue that is directly related to their educational and career goals.
The leadership program encourages and empower college students to be academically focused and career oriented while serving their communities as volunteers, leaders, role models, and mentors. Our goal is to help young women to pursue their dreams and for the transformation of their families.
Volunteers receive the Volunteer Service awards.
