Greetings! Please find updated information about Sisterhood Agenda's Sisterhood Empowerment Project, and Sisterhood Agenda’s Global Training Academy in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
PROJECT SUMMARY: PLEASE BECOME A FUNDER!
Sisterhood Agenda’s Sisterhood Empowerment Project is the only project of its kind: it is a large-scale, holistic, female-centered approach to empowering girls, young women, parents, and educators using proven programmatic strategies combined with cultural relevance and positive, alternative media, all implemented at the grassroots, community level. There are over 3,000 partner agencies that Sisterhood Agenda works with and the girls need our assistance.
The Sisterhood Agenda Global Training Academy held the following webinars: 1) Sisters: Healthy & Empowered, 2) Black is Beautiful, and 3) Modern Goddess.
