Sisterhood Mentoring Merges with Girl Band

Sisterhood Agenda programs in St. John went extremely well for 2012!  In fact, the girls want more time to meet regularly and also want to participate in artistic expression activities.

St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands is a small island with approximately 5,000 residents. Because the Sisterhood Mentoring Program and Girl Band members are not large groups and Girl Band members also need sisterhood mentoring activities, Sisterhood Agenda plans to combine them to maximize effectiveness and interest. 

Future program sessions will consist of 3-hour sessions; 1.5 hours of sisterhood mentoring, followed by 1.5 hours of performance training and practice. Currently, Sisterhood Agenda is in the process of securing meeting space and funds for books, planned activities and field trips.

Sisterhood Agenda will host the New Year's Eve Youth Extravaganza  on December 31, 2012, a unique dance party to open the new year in a safe and fun way while also registering youth for programs in 2013.

Sisterhood Agenda would like to thanks its Corporate and Community Partners for making this event possible:

Corporate Partners:  The Westin, Boyson Transportation, Scotiabank, Grande Bay, St. John Insurance Company, St. John Hardware, The Marketplace, Drift Away Spa, St. John Dental.

Community Partners:  VI Police Department, VI National Park, VI Department of Sports, Parks & Recreation, and St. John Community Foundation.

Sisterhood Agenda would like to thank everyone who supported Sisterhood Agenda’s Sisterhood Mentoring
Program at Julius E. Sprauve School. June 1-23, 2012,, the group had the opportunity to learn in a resort/retreat environment at the Westin Resort. The weekend at the Westin included program sessions such as sisterhood, healthy relationships, fitness, public presentation, and etiquette, lots of fun in the sun, swimming, plus a celebratory dinner at Cruz Bay Prime.

The final activity of the program: Sisterhood Agenda will go to the Myrah Keating Health Center for a clinic tour and discussion with Dr. Veronica Powell. Sisterhood Mentoring Program participants will receive their Certificates of Completion and Sisterhood Agenda t-shirts at the Julius E. Sprauve School closing ceremony for grades 6-8 on June 12, 2012.

“This is the beginning of a process that I hope the young ladies in the program take with them as they mature into adult women,” states Sisterhood Agenda President, Angela D. Coleman.
