Rebuilding: Slow & Steady

Sisterhood Agenda is grateful for the outpouring of support and well wishes from our constituents, donors, and those providing hurricane relief, recovery and rebuilding on the island of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands.  The island is slow to recover, yet it is recovering.  The SEA: Sisterhood Empowerment Academy is healing. And we are, too!

With our newly established administrative office in the Baltimore-Washington geographic area, we have been able to maintain our important global initiatives for women and girls and further our work:  educating, supporting and empowering women and girls with a diverse and inclusive sisterhood.  

With Sisterhood Agenda's foundation of trauma-informed counseling, consulting, training, programs and products, we are poised to begin a new re-branding multi-media campaign. We are making new connections and adding new global partners every week-we just added several partners in Australia!

We hope that you agree that it is an exciting time to work with women and girls.  Thank you for your support and kindness during our most pronounced time of need.

In the Spirit of Sisterhood,
Angela D. Coleman
Founder & President

Renewed & Upgraded-Here We Come!

After recovering from Hurricane Irma damage to our SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Sisterhood Agenda has some exciting new initiatives that we will announce shortly.  While I am not able to publicly share everything right now, I can reveal that we are getting ready to launch new and exciting platforms, especially those for global girls engagement.  

Honestly, it has been a learning curve to balance the need for effective teaching and mentoring strategies with our young people’s preoccupation with social media and technology. And while we work with girls in both small and large venues, our dreams and those of the agencies that we work with are getting bigger while our budgets are shrinking. 

Yet, these challenges help us evolve. It is a gift to have opportunities for inspiration, innovation and creativity.  As a result, we become better at what we.  We do not take anything or anyone for granted. 

Sisterhood Agenda is making significant process in terms of organization priorities and meeting our girls where they are.  We are creating environments that foster new and exciting teachable moments for girls who are hungry for information and a safe space to share.

New training and counseling paradigms, product makeovers, new products... okay, I should not share too much right now.  Please stay in contact with us as we continue to grow.  

After 23 years, our global sisterhood continues to expand, too.  We just added a new country to our sisterhood network-we now have sisterhood partners in Australia! 

Currently, Sisterhood Agenda has over 5,000 global partners in 35 countries.  Thank you for your support in this process!  Please know that we appreciate you, too and do not take you for granted, either.  There are many agencies that you can support and you choose ours.

It is a great time to work with on women and girls’ initiatives.  We are excited about the future.

Warm Regards,
Angela D. Coleman

Training, Counseling, Consulting, Programs & More

Sisterhood Agenda has recently set up an administrative office in the Baltimore-Washington geographical area while repairs to our SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy on St. John, USVI are being completed. Our new telephone number is (833) 3-SISTER, (833) 374-7837 and we have a stateside mailing address in addition to our Virgin Islands location.

With efficient communications in place, Sisterhood Agenda is poised to provide much-needed services to our constituents including, but not limited to:  schools, organizations, health agencies, and NGO's.  Our stateside constituents are particularly excited about our new accessibility for training and resource-sharing.

Training activities include curriculum guide reviews, teacher/mentor engagement strategies, and facilitator preparation for program implementation. 

Sisterhood Agenda's training specifically prepares program administrators for the realities that they face working with women and girls today.  Trauma and stress are common experiences for today's young women.  Sisterhood Agenda is also working on creating a psychological first aid training module, similar to the one used when Sisterhood Agenda team members provided hurricane relief for residents on St. John after Hurricane Irma.

Gaining knowledge, building resilience, establishing positive peer support, and coordinating an extensive support network are some of the program goals at the SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy.

Thank you for making SEA resources available for those who need it most.
