The Ivy Foundation sponsors young ladies who are high school juniors or seniors to be debutantes. Making a formal debut is a significant, fun, and memorable event in the life of a young lady and her parents/guardians. The Tea Rose Cotillion is designed to develop her appreciation for serving the community, enhance educational skills, increase awareness of career opportunities, foster social graces, and develop cultural awareness. It is also provides an opportunity for the Debutante to earn a scholarhip for college.
From the Debutante Orientation to the Culminating Event, the Ivy Foundation conducts and organizes regular workshops, community service and social activities, as well as, cultural events for the debutantes. Each debutante will work with a member of the Ivy Foundation on fundraising activities that determine the basis for the debutante’s scholarship award. Dance rehearsals for the formal debut will be held and will involve the debutante, escorts and all fathers/father figures. The culminating event of the debutante process will include a ceremony recognizing the debutantes and their parents/guardians, a formal dinner, dance, and awards ceremony where debutantes invite family and friends to attend.
