Summary

Serving girls on the small island of St. John, Sisterhood Agenda's Girl Band program is a 10-week model project partnering with the St. John School of the Arts to teach sisterhood and the arts in a video reality series-style production. Girls learn positive self-expression, vocal coaching, instrumentation and how to work together as a team.

Challenge

There are limited services for girls on the small island of St. John. For example, there is no public high school, women's center, or Girl Scouts chapter. Girls in Sisterhood Agenda's Girl Band program are students who would not otherwise be able to participate in St. John School of the Arts programs.

Solution

By learning positive self-expression, teamwork, and how to develop their artistic talents, Sisterhood Agenda is giving girls a renewed sense of self, sisterhood, and critical thinking skills.

Long-Term Impact

Girl Band is a new program will positively impact 100 girls in St. John. Like other Sisterhood Agenda programs, it can be replicated in other communities.
