"We live in a connected society, a very connected society, where we can connect with nearly anyone in the world, anytime we want," said Sister Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women general president. "What we are trying to do is connect these young women with the Spirit, with their parents, their leaders, with priesthood, and with righteous role models and mentors. Personal Progress connects the young women with the gospel of Jesus Christ and helps them prepare for the temple. It also connects them with a larger community, because every value experience has a project. I see them using Personal Progress online to expand their service, their impact, their influence in the world."
Launched this August, the online Personal Progress program, found on lds.org, was developed simultaneously with the new Personal Progress books and materials that were released earlier this year.
