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.
