“Women should serve in volunteer capacities because it’s an opportunity for them to utilize their gifts and talents in ways that enhance the lives of others” – Cherise Davis.
GLOSS’ Executive Director, Cherise Davis was recently quoted in the Fall 2016 Junior League of Atlanta (JLA) Peachtree Papers, the organization’s quarterly magazine. Cherise along with GLOSS were featured in the article “Making their Mark”, which highlighted JLA members and how they find passion in serving the community. Cherise is an active member of JLA and serves as the certificate co-chair for the Leadership Institute’s Fundraising 2.0 course.
The JLA Peachtree Papers is an awesome platform to share GLOSS’ mission and to build awareness of the organization. We see that many of the values of GLOSS align with that of, JLA as it is an organization of women, committed to making lasting transformation in the Atlanta community. It’s comprised of 3,800 of Atlanta’s most successful and powerful women.
The organization is celebrating its 100 year legacy of leadership and its ability to train women leaders to tackle tough issues impacting women and children. JLA provides a strong foundation for civic leadership and also connects women who share a commitment to voluntarism and community transformation.
One of the greatest impacts that I believe GLOSS has had on the young ladies it serves is compelling them to accept only God’s best for their lives and inspiring them to blossom through the multiple phases of life…”
