Studies show that when positive women are present in the academic setting, then behavior gets better, grades rise, the effects of crime or being involved in crime go down.
In response to this need, the Sisterhood Klub at Grant Elementary School was founded.
To prepare every girl to become an accountable, engaged woman and leader in her family and our community.
NEXT WOMAN UP!
The next woman is up to coach our girls. And each girl is the next woman up in our community.
HOW IT WORKS
The program is for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade girls at the school. We focus on three main points: what it takes to be successful, career opportunities and building relationships.
The girls meet once a week during recess and learn about respect, creativity, leadership and academic success, among other topics. Every month, they can attend an evening social and mingle and hear from women in the community.
