The MiGlow Awards
iGlow Mentoring, a Chicago-based, non-profit organization serving teen girls and MIELLE, a global hair care and beauty brand focusing on healthy hair, have joined efforts to present The MiGlow Awards, an awards ceremony that recognizes teen girls in the Chicagoland area that excel academically, exemplify extraordinary leadership skills, and show impressive involvement within their communities.
Recipients of The MiGlow Award will receive a prize package that includes an all-expense paid educational trip to London, England!
Your Investment Covers
We get it — you’d love to support our mission because you truly believe that our Brown Girls deserve to travel the world to experience what’s outside of their urban communities — you just want clarity on
where your donation is going.
For many of our girls, this trip will be the first time that they’ve ever stepped onto a plane. Your contribution will help fulfill the dreams of young girls that’s always wanted to grace the airways.
As much as we’d like to stay out all night, eventually we’ll have to catch some ZZZs. Your gift will help us lodge over 21 girls and chaperones for 8 nights.
It’s so much to do, yet so little time! Although we will be spending the majority of our time in London, we’d be doing our girls a disservice to not give them a chance to explore other nearby places.
To keep the cost low for parents, we’d like to include all meals to ensure that our girls are fed and fueled, ready to dominate the streets of London.
Many of our mentees are from under-resourced communities. Not only are we covering all expenses, but we’d also like for them to enjoy the cultural experience without feeling limited due to a lack of spending capital.

Our Donors Say
Meet Our Founder
At iGlow Mentoring, we imagine a world ruled by girls and believe that when empowered they can become catalysts of change in their communities. We do this by exposing girls to various activities and experiences that enhance their skills and prepare them to take the lead. Our curriculum includes topics on college readiness, career development, and cultural awareness. At iGlow, we encourage girls to achieve true potential and become the leader they were always destined to be.
Thank you to our partners for their support. We wouldn’t be where we are without them!
