Jada McGee is the light that our culture and community needs.
To be CHOSEN means to be appointed, favored, and hand-picked. I have not known this young lady for very long but what I do know for sure is that she has been chosen by God for a time such as this. Jada McGee is the founder of Youth Training Services. I had the pleasure of meeting Jada at the Girls Entrepreneur Expo. It was truly an honor to have her there, not only as a vendor but as a light for the other youth who were present.
Her program has been running for three years now. She is only 15 years old and is already making a huge impact in the lives of others especially in the lives of youth.
Youth Training Services is a nonprofit organization that promotes abstinence and celibacy until marriage.
Our foundation is 1 Corinthians 6:20 “For you were bought with a high price, so you must honor God with your body.” Through sessions and conferences teach sexual purity, goal setting, academics, health, and finances.
What makes your organization unique?
What makes my organization unique is that you don’t hear people talking about keeping themselves till marriage because sex is the big talk these days.
What inspired you to get started?
I started this organization when I was thirteen when I was in my parents room trying to figure out what I was going to do for my birthday. I asked my mom what is it called when you say you are going to keep yourself sexually until marriage and she said it’s called a purity ceremony. So the week after my birthday party my four friends and I dressed in our all white and stood in front our family, friends, church congregation and pastor and said we were going to remain virgins until we get married. I decided that I wanted to reach out to other churches to see if other youth wanted to do it as well and now we have thirty-five teens and preteens in total.
What inspires you to keep going?
What inspires me to keep going is the fact that I am not the only one who wants to keep myself sexually until I get married and focus my time and energy on my education, my goals and my family.
What advice will you give another young lady who is dealing with any adversity/personal challenges?
One piece of advice I would give to young ladies is don’t try to fit in with the crowd. You are beautiful inside and out.
What else would you like for us to know?
My goal is to one day purchase a building that will house Youth Training Services. I am also the author of my first book, Really? Why Would He Choose Me?
My book is about my struggles and accomplishments in life. I also give advice that helps teens and adults.
Jada isn’t only making an impact on our community, her message will make an impact in our world. I feel blessed to have crossed paths with her and I’m highly anticipating what’s to come!
Please make sure you purchase her book!
