SHE: Sisters, Healthy & Empowered

SHE demonstrates a shift toward a holistic and integrated systematic approach to youth development, mental health, and wellness. For effective program implementation, Sisterhood Agenda offers Sister Circles training for individuals and agencies. Contact us for details.

SESSION:  SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 2016 11AM-6PM

Sisterhood Agenda promotes sisterhood among girls by supporting them in making healthy choices. SHE project staff will implement evidence-based youth activities for 50 girls ages 12-17 at the SEA in St. John.

The main objective of the newly expanded SHE initiative is to recognize, address, and diminish multiple major health disparities for local teenage girls in the St. Thomas-St. John school district, promote healthy behavior and teamwork.

Agencies may host SHE activities at their locations by contacting us.  SHE is part of Sisterhood Agenda’s Global Educational Empowerment Project.

Inspiration

  • “Unity helps us work and live together peacefully. We feel connected with each other and all living things. We value the specialness of each person as a gift, not as a reason to fight or be scared. With unity we accomplish more together than any one of us could do alone.”

  • “My sisters remind me, by their very steadfastness, that truth, beauty and goodness exist in the world, and that no matter what, there are and always will be people loving people through thick and thin.”
