Salvaging Sisterhood is an initiative that will empower African American female students in grades 9-12 and their support systems in the areas of: effective communication, conflict resolution, coping skills, self-advocacy, self-awareness, and self-care. Receiving this grant is integral in allowing us to achieve this goal, as it will provide the funding and resources to offer the following: small group counseling sessions; books for bibliotherapy small groups; parent & community workshops; restorative yoga and mediation; field trips and professional development.
Writing the grant helped organize thoughts and ideas with the end result becoming a blueprint for the implementation of the program. Additionally, it provided an opportunity to create a proactive, solution focused program for Henrico High School students and their families.
