Meet the Role Models: Black History Month
Posted by Jennifer Michael Feb 2, 2016
As February comes to a close, we’d like to highlight two of the Role Models we’ve included in our Sisterhood in Service Spring 2016 Curriculum to close out Black History Month.
Each week, our girls read a short biography of a Role Model with their College Mentors. The biography focuses on a particular skill embodied by that Woman or Girl which makes her Strong, and is followed with activities that allow the girls to think about how they see that Strength in their own lives, and how they can embody it themselves.

This Spring, the girls will read about two Women of Color: Barbara Jordan and Ethel Payne.
There is great diversity in the racial backgrounds of the girls who are a part of our program, so it’s important to us that the female role models in our curriculum represent the rich backgrounds of the girls we serve. We are proud that the 767 girls in Boston have been learning about these incredible women.
