New Learning Platform

As we evolve and adapt to our new normal, Sisterhood Agenda is announcing a new set of online workshops and girl programs, including A Journey Toward Womanhood and SHE:  Sisters, Healthy & Empowered.  We are launching recruitment for new participants this week and these programs are scheduled to begin in February 2021.

Sisterhood Agenda expanded our trauma-informed holistic health agenda with a new, interactive learning platform.  While this is experimental, we are optimistic about its capacity to engage program participants safely and confidentially.  Also, combined with live video, we will be assessing the effectiveness of the new format. Implementation and participant feedback will inform us, moving forward.

We will also offer all SHE participants our sisterhood support services, particularly Sisterhood Agenda's counseling and mentoring Big Sister sessions.   Of course, these sessions are also offered via video.

Honestly, this transition has been taking a little longer than expected. We are all required to adapt and some of us move along this journey more quickly than others.  Above all, we remain committed and grateful for the support of our constituents, including important donors like you!

It's a New World

We know that it’s a new world.

At Sisterhood Agenda, we recognize the need for global girls to come together. At most times. At this time. At all times.

One Sisterhood Agenda principle remains: sisterhood is the key to empowerment, social change, and freedom.

Embracing the concept of creativity and adaptation in a whole new world, one that is presently impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we found an exciting opportunity to engage our global girls' sisterhood.

It’s all about community, specifically, building sisterhood through community by creating a whole new world, the world as we want and need it to be online, virtually.

Gatherings help members of the community come together. It is not just a physical union, but a bonding dynamic of reciprocal support:

“When people can gather — in person or virtually — they form relationships that keep them coming back for more.” https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/355841

When people feel like part of a community, they feel:

Seen
Accepted
Heard
Valued
Supported
Encouraged

Sisterhood is:

Celebrating
Untamed
Unique
Accepting
Supportive
Empowering
Connecting in a meaningful way
Never being alone
Powerful
A sense of belonging
Mentoring
Remembering

“A good friend knows all of your best stories. A sister has lived them with you.”

“Unity helps us work and live together peacefully. We feel connected with each other and all living things. We value the specialness of each person as a gift. With unity, we accomplish more than any one of us could do alone.”

Health is Holistic

At Sisterhood Agenda, we know that health is holistic. This means that our physical and mental selves are connected to every part of our existence. An impact on our mental health and emotional well-being, for example, impacts our physical health.

Similarly, health and finances are interconnected. How? As the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated, health and finance gender gaps are killing women around the globe.

Good health, is therefore, extremely relevant for both prevention and intervention.

In sisterhood, we educate, support, and empower. Expanding our impact, we are utilizing our social media platforms to inform, engage, motivate, and inspire women to pay attention to their health, happiness, and well-being during these turbulent times.

Sisterhood Agenda recently published its latest Girls Guide: How to Relax & Let Go. This book is a critical piece of information for learning how to manage anxiety, stress, and depression to optimize holistic health.

Available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, we are just a few eBooks away from a bestseller!

Sisterhood Agenda is sharing our book content as a teaching tool with our SHE: Sisters: Healthy & Empowered groups. Integrating this publication, SHE participants will learn more about:

-What relaxation is and how to use time wisely
-How to create and maintain an aura of peace to reduce anxiety and worry
-The best environments that promote self-awareness and mindfulness
-Why relaxation and letting go is necessary to optimize health and emotional well-being
-The gender and cultural implications of self-care and rest
-How to identify what’s keeping you from being able to relax and let go
-How to use the resources around you (nature, herbs, exercise, sisterhood support) to relax and let go

Thank you so much for your participation and support. We could not do this without you!
