Sisterhood Mentoring Group February 2012
Sisterhood Agenda recently began its Sisterhood Mentoring Program at Julius E. Sprauve School in St. John. The program, led by Sisterhood Agenda’s President, Angela D. Coleman, meets every Wednesday until the end of
the school year. Ms. Coleman acts as a Big Sister to help ten female students go through their “journey toward
womanhood” together in the spirit of sisterhood.
Julius E. Sprauve School Principal Dionne Wells states, “The Sisterhood Mentoring Program is a good opportunity for girls to spend time with someone who has a positive influence on them with discussions and activities. We need a lot more of that.”
Assistant Principal Brenda Dalmida believes, “Our young ladies can bond in less competitive ways, learn strategies for working together, and appreciate the importance of sisterhood. It will help them see strengths in each other and in themselves.”
The Sisterhood Mentoring Program promotes comprehensive self-development and educational success. With a written curriculum and student manuals, program activities include: sisterhood, self-esteem, diet and nutrition,
health and fitness, public presentation, etiquette, healthy relationships, and life skills.
Other local Sisterhood Agenda programs include: Girl Band, Sisterhood/Brotherhood New Year’s Eve Youth Extravaganza, and Sisterhood/Brotherhood Career & Life Skills Training Summer Program.
Volunteers from the community are invited to speak to
the group and present information.
