Think Tank Workshops

Our think tank workshops are designed to further inform our co-production model. We understand that the girls and young women with lived experienced are the experts. We work alongside them, helping them to find their voice to ensure that the Sister System offer continues to enable, enhance and empower girls and young women throughout their adolescence and into womanhood. 

Ambassador Events

The workshops and peer-to-peer events introduce young women and girls to Sister System's Empowerment Model, and the role of becoming Ambassadors.
