Chaplain’s Office Supports Student Service Organizations

The Office of the Chaplain’s student group Angels Against Trafficking is merging with Sisters United under the name Sisters United. SU supports vulnerable girls and will now have a local anti-human trafficking initiative and continued international effort supporting the educational needs of girls in Kenya and Ghana. The group will be starting a new human trafficking prevention program, realizing that vulnerable young people in Raleigh are susceptible to being lured into human trafficking.

Triple S; Sisters Supporting Sisters is a mentorship program for girls in foster care and girls with refugee status. A Meredith student will be paired with one of the girls for the academic year, and the “buddies” will meet every other Tuesday for a variety of activities—homework help, fun activities organized by Meredith departmental clubs, and topical workshops led by upper class women and facilitated by Meredith Assistant Professor of Social Work Joy Learman.

The Sisters Supporting Sisters effort will need many volunteers; please contact Chaplain Stacy Pardue at pardues@meredith.edu if you are interested in participating.
