Who Should Apply?

Young ladies between the ages of 9 thru 15 that are without a positive mother figure in their lives are encouraged to apply.  Legal guardians can also apply on behalf of young ladies.


If you feel you can benefit from MDF and also feel you can invest your time into being a lady of influence, you should apply. 

Why Motherless Daughters Foundation?

Our participants literally grow with our program.  We aim to keep young ladies involved through high school graduation. Upon graduation, we have a retention program that helps these young ladies give back and become mentors themselves. The life experiences, friendships and family bond are truly priceless. Take a look at our events page to see what we've done in the past

We hold active recruitment at the beginning of the year in the months of February and March.  However, you are welcome to submit applications year round.  Applications are reviewed, selected for interviews and inducted into our organization pending open slots.

What Are The Requirements?

We accept young ladies between 9 and 15 years of age.  You must submit a formal application, have a legal guardian sign off and also submit a written essay.  You are also expected to participate and be willing/open to grow with MDF.
