Do you desire to help girls ages 9-13 who have refugee status or are in foster care?
posted: August 29, 2014
The Sisters Supporting Sisters Mentorship Program (Triple S) sponsored by Sisters United aims to serve girls ages 9-13 who either have refugee status or are in foster care. We will hold bimonthly events for a group of around 15 girls. These events will incorporate fun activities (dancing, art projects) , theme based workshops (everything from body image, healthy relationships and beyond), and tutoring. Our first event will be at the end of September and we are looking for volunteers who will make this program a success.
If you are looking for volunteer hours we are in need of snack preparers (1 hour/month), set-up help (1 hour/month) , and clean up help (1 hour/month).
If you desire one-on-one time with the girls we have 15 mentorship positions (competitive), activity leaders (you can be a one time activity leader or return as often as you want), workshop leaders (again, you can be a one time activity leader or return as often as you want), or a tutor (can come to as many sessions as what fits in your schedule). Sessions will be held from 4-6:30pm two Tuesdays a month. We will gladly accommodate any on campus organizations that what to get involved with an event, this would make a great group service project! We will also need assistance with providing snacks for the girls at each event (pita chips and humus etc.).
for more information.
All Triple S sessions and events can be found at the below link (schedule also includes Sisters United Google Docs)
Look forward from hearing from you!!!
