Valdosta-AAUW’s Sister-to-Sister Summit provides a unique educational and social experience for regional teens that focuses on character education, STEM activities, and education and career development. Additionally, the Summit brings together diverse, adolescent girls to address issues that concern them such as body image, early sexual activity, and bullying. AAUW collaborates with regional school administrators, teachers, counselors, local groups, and parent-teacher organizations to plan the summit and pursue follow-up activities.
20th Annual Sister-to-Sister Summit
Approximately 100 middle school girls from regional counties (Lowndes, Brooks, Echols, Valdosta City, and more) will participate in a full-day mentor program aimed at promoting self-esteem and moral values, STEM awareness, and social engagement.
“The goal is to address issues that impact the lives of middle school girls, yet cannot be covered under curriculum at most schools,” said Beatriz Potter, former Valdosta AAUW President and current member.
Those in attendance will receive breakfast and lunch, a free t-shirt and goody bag and will participate in engaging activities like group discussion, hands-on activities, dancing and campus tours.
Thanks to all who contribute to make this event a success!
