Ready for SHE

SHE in St. John
SHE in St. John

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/.

We Added Sister Circles, Of Course!

Sister Circles for Women & Girls
Sister Circles for Women & Girls

In addition to integrating trauma-informed (TI) sister circles in Sisterhood Agenda's SHE:  Sisters, Healthy & Empowered program, we are offering sister circles for college students in March 2016, in recognition of Women's History Month. 

The TI sister circles for college students will focus on sexual assault isues on campus, healing processes, and identification of local resources.These unique services will be coordinated with university's who are part tof the Associaton of American Universities and Sisterhood Agenda is requesting sponsorship from each participating institution.

Sisterhood Agenda's TI sister circles are offered in an innovative online format to:  1) pool talent in offering support, 2) maximize participation from any geographical area with Internet access, and 3) to minimize costs. It will be interesting to see how this works in terms of effectiveness and impact.

College students are not the only ones targeted for educational empowerment in March 2016!  Sisterhood Agenda will offer another TI sister circle for helping all girls throughout our global network identify and respond to traumatic events in their lives.

Knowlede is power and sisterhood support is priceless. At Sisterhood Agenda, we believe this type of educational empowerment promotes the bond we share as women and girls while creating a solid mental, physical, and emotional foundation for future success.
