SHE by the SEA

Sisterhood Agenda Girls in St. John, USVI
Sisterhood Agenda Girls in St. John, USVI

With its Sisterhood Empowerment Academy (SEA) headquartered in St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI), Sisterhood Agenda has been addressing the health, cultural and social issues of women and girls for over twenty years.

Through our work we have discovered how trauma, poor health and lack of fitness have disturbing effects on the welfare of woman and girls, particularly for women and girls who live in rural areas, are culturally resistent to organieed sports activities and have strayed from their healthier more traditional diets. SHE has been implemented since 2006, however, this is the first time it will be implemented in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

SHE includes a holistic and innovative approach with a healing paradigm, sports programs, and health promotion at the SEA.  SHE is an important aspect of Sisterhood Agenda's Global Empowerment for 100,000 Girls, especially since it introduces our programming to a new popoulation in the Caribbean and is uniquely trauma-informed.

Starting Saturday, March 19, 2016, SHE project staff will implement evidence-based youth activities for 50 girls ages 12-17 at the SEA in St. John. The main objective of the newly expanded SHE initiative is to recognize, address, and diminish multiple major health disparities, promote healthy behavior and teamwork.

Ready for SHE

Recruitment for Sisterhood Agenda's SHE:  Sisters Healthy & Empowered program has begun and only a few spots remain!  The SHE program is slated to begin March 26, 2016.

The teen girls program is a trauma-informed (TI) activity for girls ages 14-16.  SHE demonstrates a shift toward a holistic and integrated systematic approach to youth development, mental health, and wellness.

Sisterhood Agenda promotes sisterhood among girls by supporting them in making healthy choices. SHE project staff implements evidence-based mentoring, self-development, fitness and life skills activities for 50 girls ages 12-17.

SHE activities include yoga, water sports, Sister Circles, mental health awareness, field trips and group fun. Program activities take place at the SEA: Sisterhood Empowerment Academy and at various beach locations throughout St. John, US. Virgin Islands.

The more we raise, the more girls we can serve.  Sisterhood Agenda would also like to offer SHE program activities to girls who do not live on the island of St. John.

The Roof is Done!

SEA Roof Structure
SEA Roof Structure

After careful attention to detailed hurricane-proofing and a series of delays due to rain, the SEA roof is complete!  In addition to having shelter over our heads, the roof is the Sisterhood Empowerment Academy’s water catchment system.

The water is diverted to water tanks and overflow enters a cistern.  With a large roof, over 1,600 square feet, we are excited about our water sustainability, especially after the drought this past summer.

Now, onto the next tasks in this building phase:  decking and interior walls.

Sisaterhood Agenda also expanded its website and program packages available at the SEA.  Packages include:

1. SHE: Sisters Healthy & Empowered

2. Sister Circles:  Educational Sponsor

3. Sister Circles:  Corporate Sponsor

These trauma-informed, self-development, sisterhood activities will be based at the new SEA location in 2016.

The SEA eco-building on the island of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands is a very exciting project for Sisterhood Agenda. It's a big deal here!  You can see pictures and more informaiton at:  http://www.seausvi.com/the-roof-is-done/.
