A special event was held on Monday night in the town of Orange.
9th grade girls from West Haven High School, along with the most important women in their lives, all got together for tea.
The event is called “Young Divas on the Move” and it’s sponsored by the West Haven Black Coalition.
The program aims to teach young girls how to be ladies with education as their priority.
Along with education, the program teaches these young ladies life skills.
They host community events and do charity work.
