S.O.U.L. Sisters Leadership Project Summer Institute

S.O.U.L. Sisters Leadership Project

The S.O.U.L. Sisters Leadership Project is a leadership development program for court-involved young women. It is an intensive 2-week program that seeks to challenge and motivate young women to recognize their leadership abilities in their communities, school, and families. Young women will be mentored on how to strengthen their voice and speak up for what is right. The program includes a retreat, workshops, field trips, guest speakers, mentors and a stipend.

The Sisters Organizing for Unity and Leadership Project is accepting applications for their new summer institute for young women, ages 14-18 years old!

5 Things A Prospective Candidate Should Know About Spending Their Summer with S.O.U.L. Sisters:

1.  Starts August 2, 2013 and ends August 16, 2013. There will be a mandatory orientation at the end of July for all accepted participants! The program is Monday-Friday 10am-4:30pm (Friday field trips are shorter days)! Attendance Policy: no more than 1 absence.

2.  Each participant will be on a college campus and receive a stipend, lunch and metro card for the full two weeks of program.

3.  Each participant will take 4 workshops during the summer program including a leader seminar, identity workshop, and creative workshop.

4.  Each participant will have a mentor called a counselor! She will be the young woman’s mentor throughout the two-week institute and will provide her with support and encouragement!

5.  Special Activities: Overnight Retreat, Leader Wednesdays (hearing women leaders tell their stories), Fun Fridays (Women in Action trips) & Workshops (healthy relationships, feminism, street harassment, college support)!

Please Note: All participants must be court-involved, meaning they have been arrested at least once.
