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.

Holistic health includes mental, physical, and spiritual readiness.  A healthy sisterhood is an empowered sisterhood. SHE:  Sisters, Healthy & Empowered training includes an activity guide review, teacher/mentor engagement strategies, and facilitator preparation for program implementation. 

Sisterhood Agenda's training specifically prepares SHE 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.  Obesity/overweight and its related negative health outcomes disproportionately affect girls of color. 

Gaining knowledge, building resilience, positive peer support, and establishing a extensive support network are some of the goals of SHE: Sisters, Healthy & Empowered.  

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

Moving Forward: Recovering & Rebuilding for Success

At Sisterhood Agenda, we have not been sitting still.  We have been jumping over hurdles and scaling walls to make progress toward our mission, despite the damage and hardships caused by Hurricane Irma. Our efforts are being rewarded. The women and girls that we work with are too valuable and our work is too important to stop now.   

Thank you to everyone who has supported us and is continuing to contribute to Sisterhood Agenda's Hurricane Irma Relief campaign.  We certainly need your assistance like never before and you have come through for us! 

Sisterhood Agenda team members have been working with federal, local, and private agencies to assist those most in need on the island of St. John. After doing immediate disaster relief work with several entities, energy is slowly being directed to rebuilding efforts.

Building materials have to be imported to the island and there are those who are thinking ahead. For example, one of the agencies, Angels of Asheville, is committed to bringing donated building materials to St. John from private donors via shipping container from Asheville, North Carolina.

With our heightened resilience, Sisterhood Agenda is now building a newer, stronger foundation for success. Largely due to our committed network of support, we have been able to set up an administrative base in the U.S. for consistent mobile and Internet services and better access to our stateside global partners while the island of St. John, the location of our SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy, recovers.  In addition, our builder is committed to rebuild the roof, walls, plus install the doors and windows that were destroyed during the storm.  Of course, our efforts towards this goals are affected by funds and building materials that are available to us.

We are in the process of converting Sisterhood Agenda's print library, which was destroyed by the hurricane, to a digital library that can be accessed via Sisterhood Agenda's website, https://sisterhoodagenda.com/. 

We are excited to bring our work to the next level-training, counseling, and working with other groups and individuals committed to serving women and girls. Successful resolution of sexual harassment, gender inequality, violence against women and trauma, while promoting unity in diversity, health and healing in the spirit of sisterhood is what we are all about.  We could not do it withhout you.  

Stay tuned as we continue to move forward... to success.

Warm Regards,
Angela D. Coleman
