The SEA: Phase I Success!

Tremendous progress has been made with the Sisterhood Empowerment Academy (SEA) eco-building. After blessing the land with a small ceremony that included prayers and drumming, Phase I (driveway excavation, foundation footings (partially complete), container placement, and storage is complete!

Phase II will begin once additional funds are received within the month. The next phase includes building the media room, library and small kitchenette area. The media center is critical to livestreaming events to and from the SEA.

Importantly, the SEA is also the program space utilized for the SHE: Sisters, Healthy & Empowered program, and other Sisterhood Agenda initiatives such as the Global Girls Education Project. The SEA is a green building with panoramic ocean views, organic gardens, and permaculture design.

Construction of the SEA should be completed by the end of the summer 2015. Then, programs at the new SEA location begin!

Global Girls Get Social!

Sisterhood Agenda’s Global Girls Education Project continues with more global partners added weekly. Our most recent partners are providing much-needed empowerment services to girls in eastern and southern Africa. There is a large interest in mentoring services in the U.S.  Exciting news:  Sisterhood Agenda is in the process of expanding its social media in a new campaign to engage girls in mentoring, positive media, and holistic health during their journey toward womanhood.

We will announce our new and expanded social media initiatives duing the summer 2015.  In addition to using social media, Sisterhood Agenda will increase resource-sharing with over 3,500 of its global partners by using program curricula, training, presentations, and workshops to reach social service providers and girls directly.  Sisterhood Agenda representatives are willing and able to travel to reach girls and those who work with them.

Online training is another option, which is more affordable for most Sisterhood Agenda global partners.  When Sisterhood Agenda’s Sisterhood Empowerment Academy (SEA) headquarters is completed, training webinars and livestream events will resume and is just another strategy of resource-sharing to reach more global girls and make greater impacts.

SHE Serves Girls in St. John for the First Time

SHE: Sisters, Healthy & Empowered is off to a great start! While the program’s official start date is not until July 2015, Sisterhood Agenda has begun identifying program participants and volunteers.

While the SHE program has been actively implemented in the United States, this year will be the first time this popular program has been offered to girls on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The SHE initiative in St. John was made possible by donors like you, the Rotary Club of St. John, and the Women’s Sports Foundation.

Toward the goal of increasing awareness, Sisterhood Agenda participated in the St. John Summer Fair on May 5, 2015. Representatives talked about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) and how Sisterhood Agenda’s newly expanded SHE program includes trauma informed services, as well as water sports and fitness, plus sisterhood circles.

We are excited about future SHE program sessions for girls and many women expressed interest in SHE services for adult women.
