One Day

We begin the day @ 10am and go through 5pm. We feed you breakfast, lunch and snacks too!

100+ Participants

We have 2 tracks: one for youth, and the other for educators, parents and caregivers. Our work reaches young women directly and indirectly.

Over 20 Workshops

Choose your own adventure! Workshops are diverse, yet fit into a theme. But hurry, once a workshop is full, that's it!

This year's Sisterhood Summit, Treat Yo' Self: Healthy, Whole and Free Black Girls, is on Saturday, October 25, 2014 from 10am to 6pm in Lower Manhattan!
