ministry, Daughters of Zion 101 embrace young ladies in a positive and safe way. We work together to pour into the next generation, many of the key values that have been lost over time. You know, the things you wish someone had taught you!
We address the challenges that young women may face and some of the topics we address are healthy relationships and boundaries, self-worth, social media, personal safeguards, intimate relationships, self-respect and awareness, personal appearance, self-confidence, abuse, secrets, internal conflict, effective communications and current issues.
Girl Talk 101 ~ Each session will have a specific topic for discussion. Ladies will be encouraged to share testimonies, each session will include journal time and the ladies will also have the opportunity to come together to share ways they see themselves as valuable and discuss areas they want to improve.
Horizons Book Club ~ Reading expands our minds, provides an opportunity to expand our experiences and explore new horizons. Together, young women will read books that will propel them into becoming young women of God.

Equipping young ladies to walk in their destiny through
mentorship and enrichment programming
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful
To equip and encourage young women, middle through high school aged, to live beyond their circumstances and walk forward toward their destiny through enrichment programming and mentorship.
Daughters of Zion 101 is designed to work hand in hand with each young woman, to remind them of their worth, while blossoming into their authentic selves.
Latifa Miller, founder of Daughters of Zion 101 (DOZ), is committed to empowering young women to succeed in life without scars.
Latifa's purpose and passion was birthed after making a stark observation. Being involved in various organizations, she watched many girls struggle to overcome life obstacles. And, seemingly, there were women before them who idly and silently witnessed their struggles while hiding behind their own secrets and shame. Their untold testimonies leave young women without a map to navigate through life. We, as women, are the forerunners and must tell our full stories out loud. Our testimonies have the power to heal, guide and teach upcoming generations. Through mentoring, life skills and group counseling, DOZ seeks to assist in bridging that gap and help young women live beyond their obstacles and love their authentic selves.
Latifa is a Philadelphia native, a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, a devoted mother and loving wife. She serves as a Board member of a local private school and is a member of several local organizations.
