I Am My Sister is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization targeting at-risk teenage girls in the United States, with an immediate focus in North Carolina. I Am My Sister’s initiative and drive surrounds offering clubs, workshops and community outreach programs that improve the fabric of the community through the nurturing and development of at-risk teenage girls through the use of grants, donations and corporate sponsorship. This agenda is advanced in a three tier process which fully integrates the programs offered, the community as a whole and the corporate/business community.
First tier is the grass roots campaign of reaching directly into schools, agencies, community programs and churches with clubs, instructional programs, workshops, etc. for teenage girls and their peers with specifically designed programs to meet their identifiable needs.
Second tier is the involvement of I Am My Sister with the surrounding communities in getting the word out that assistance is available and who we are and what is offered.
Third tier, which builds on the previous two focuses on professional development of the girls once they have been through the building process of creating self-esteem, focusing on goals, etc. and transitioning them into their futures by providing education and professional development; such as work internships, interviewing skills, decision-making abilities, goal setting and personal management issues. All clubs and extended programs integrate a community service learning component.
We are helping to identify the problem, recruiting help and resources as well as get the word out and then offer a long term productive solution which will ultimately benefit the community as a whole.
The strongest geometric shape is a triangle for good reason. There are three acute angles and three sides which can all be manipulated to retain its shape but still be flexible enough to remain strong.
