Meet the Founders
DG4Life, Inc. operates as D.R.E.A.M. Girls & Distinguished Gentlemen. We are a non-profit organization designed specifically for male and female teens ages 12 through 18. This program was founded by Josie Martin in 1998 with the purpose of building character and training teenagers on social graces (etiquette), personal development, poise and charm, while valuing their commitment to abstain from sex, maintain a life of purity and chastity until marriage.
During the eight-month program, each student participates in classroom activities, community service, social events and mentoring. At the end of the training, qualified participants will receive awards and participate in a formal presentation ceremony. Each student will take a vow of chastity until marriage and receive a token of their commitment to celibacy.
In January 2004, the male component of the program, Distinguished Gentlemen, was developed by Ron Martin, Josie’s husband of over 30 years. Distinguished Gentlemen offers a similar program with instruction expressly meeting the needs of today’s teenage young men. We are located in Southern California serving Los Angeles and Orange County with training nationwide in Houston, Texas; Atlanta, Georgia; Vicksburg Mississippi; Johannesburg, South Africa and other locations.

"As a parent of a Dream Girls Alumnae, I can wholeheartedly say that the program fully met my expectations. It re-emphasized and re-enforced the morals, values, and life-lessons that we, as parents, strive so hard to instill in our daughter and did so in a way that made her "want" to exemplify the characteristics of grace, poise, elegance, proper etiquette, abstinence, spiritual/social growth & responsibility, and high self-esteem."
