Funding also supports Sisters Circle’s one-to-one mentoring match program as it continues to adapt during the pandemic, as well as monthly mentor-mentee activities, mentor training and support and summer enrichment experiences. As a result of these efforts, middle grade students will discover they have a voice and they can realize a vision that includes high school graduation, college and career or alternative productive pathways.
Students are safely supported in a web of mentors, teachers, guidance counselors, family members, staff and community partners, and are exposed to academic enrichment; summer camps that challenge their comfort zone; role playing on conflict resolution and Girl Talk sessions where vulnerability is embraced.
Thanks to Sisters Circle, these girls — often prey to urban risk factors such as teen pregnancy, school dropout, and drugs/alcohol abuse — instead find their footing to confidently navigate through major life transitions and move forward with voice and vision.
