Gender Specific Programs
Seed Sowing Sister offers gender specific programs to children 12 and up as an out of school time supplement. Groups will be offered twice per week (for each gender) over a 6 week implementation. Participant workbooks and activity sheets will be used to affirm program activites and give participants an opportunity to reflect back on skills attained.
Individual presentations/ workshops will be offered assembly style to groups, focusing on character development and positive behavior patterns. These 55 minute presentations will energize students and reignite their internal motivation and drive to achieve. At- risk and neglected students need support and uplifting to continue persevering through life circumstances. At-risk students often identify with the troubles they have faced and need opportunities to be celebrated for accomplishments and changes made no matter how small the improvement.
