Girls on St. John are Healthy & Empowered

With its SHE program, Sisterhood Agenda promotes sisterhood among girls by supporting them in making healthy choices. Fun, learning, movement and sisterhood created an awesome day for all!

Sisterhood Agenda held a SHE: Sisters, Healthy & Empowered retreat at the agency’s new SEA: Sisterhood Empowerment Academy headquarters in St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands.

The main objective of the newly expanded SHE initiative was to recognize, address, and diminish multiple major health disparities for local teenage girls.  We promoted mental health, building resilience, healthy behavior and teamwork.

LEADERSHIP

CONFIDENCE

SELF-ESTEEM

PERSEVERANCE

SHE activities for the day included:  Sister Circles, healthy lunch, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, yoga, meditation and affirmations.

SHE on St. John is sponsored by Women’s Sports Foundation Sports for Life program, ESPNW, Rotary Club of St. John, St. John Insurance Agency, St. John Hardware, and generous donors like you.  With the utmost gratitude, THANK YOU!

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.
