Teachers, mentors, and administrators can receive A Journey Toward Womanhood certification during Sisterhood Agenda’s first global sisterhood conference in November 2011.  

In addition, Sisterhood Agenda is seeking funding for its innovative Positive Media campaign to teach girls how to use technology and media to create sustainable positive social change.  Offering eBooks, creating a new website, opening a production studio in the U.S. Virgin Islands to produce new content, and revamping Sisterhood Agenda Magazine are some of the components of Positive Media.
