Our Youth Lead Change

For 20 years, young women in our programs tackled the most pressing issues facing their peers. We are proud of the work of the 2017-2018 Youth Steering Committee where they addressed the pervasive female experience of girl on girl hate, competition, and violence. In their video seen here, they courageously and honestly told their personal stories so other young women who have had similar experiences know they are not alone.

They asked that we join together in providing Sister Support and countering this epidemic of violence.
