It takes a village to raise a child and when my daughter was a teenager, Sisterhood Agenda was my village. They helped her with her self esteem issues and to be proud of who she was as an African American young women with great potential. The goals of the Sisterhood and the strong women that gave of their time and their talent was impeccable. I take my hat off to this organization, and they come highly recommended for their honest dedication, and the love they showed for their work in esteem-building and self empowerment of our young women.
If teenagers are armed with motivation, information and resources, I believe anyone can achieve success, no matter their background or life experience. That is one of the many reasons why I established my own Youth & Education Expo’s and why organizations like Sisterhood Agenda are beneficial to today’s young girls.Judge Greg Mathis Superior Court Judge2014-02-28

Knowledge, support and self-esteem are particularly crucial for African American teenage girls in developing positive self-concepts and preventing teen pregnancies and social withdrawal. My daughter benefited tremendously from the program and I am certain that others will benefit as much or more. I wholeheartedly support this program as a model program.Mr. Womble School Principal2014-04-02
As the parents of a recent graduate, my husband and I agree that the curriculum and leadership of the program are of high quality and that our daughter, Jeri, benefited greatly from it. As often as a program of this type and caliber can be presented to the children of our community, we encourage the Girls’ Club to do so.Ms. Brown Parent2014-04-03
Sisterhood Agenda gave a complete overview and a detailed understanding of the curriculum. There was considerable dialogue, which stimulated analytical and evaluative thought processes. By the end of the training, I felt well-prepared and eager to start.Ms. Shabazz Teacher/Mentor2014-04-30
