10th Annual Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit
March 18, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pmFree
You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.” – Steve Maraboli
For the past 10 years, the Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit has created spaces for girls to unapologetically lean into their greatest selves and purpose. We have demonstrated a commitment to helping young women of pan-African descent achieve self-awareness, self-appreciation, and self-actualization. Year after year we have reminded these young women of their power and that they are Queens that can choose to reclaim their thrones at any time!
The Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit (S2S) is a two-day empowerment summit connecting 200 high school girls of Pan-African descent from underserved areas across NYC with women making a difference in the areas of media, health and wellness, entertainment, education, and personal growth. Participants engage in workshops, live entertainment, and reflective activities. Utilizing a 3 step-process of self-awareness, self-appreciation, and self-actualization the summit equips participants with fundamental tools to make well-informed decisions today and in the future. S2S is held every March during Women’s History Month.
Since 2011 the Gye Nyame Empowerment Project, (GNEP) has offered a $1,000 book scholarships for one eligible high school senior attending a four-year college and committed to being a leader in her community. If you are a high school senior and would like to apply for this opportunity, please indicate your interest in the registration form.
