Sisters of Nia is open to girls of all ethnicities and backgrounds. Our data has proven that participation in the three-year program leads to greater emotional maturity, enhanced decision making, academic improvement, and more positive relationships and life skills for our members. Our activities and lessons are based on researched theory in order to achieve the highest levels of growth and success for our participants.
Sisters of Nia, Inc. is a three-year Rites of Passage program, focusing on a different aspect of adolescent female life each year from sixth grade to eighth grade. The program culminates in eighth grade with a college tour and Rites of Passage ceremony. We maintain high levels of contact with our enrolled participants as well as our alumni, serving as on on-going community resource that provides referrals for counseling, tutoring, and other outreach services for families in need.
"Sisters of Nia, Inc. is a valued and unique program in the Sacramento community. There are no other three-year rites of passage programs working with adolescent girls in the area. Our three-year model allows us to build strong relationships with the girls and their families, and promotes working together as a community to bring out the best in our youth. Our greatest accomplishment is being able to serve the youth and families of Sacramento with a high-quality yet extremely affordable program.
Our Sisters of Nia weekly program exceeds its limit of participants each year, with dozens of girls who are waiting in anticipation of joining. Our yearly activities and programs have tremendous youth and community participation and support, often resulting in wait-lists due to limited funding and capacity to serve the numbers who want to participate. In addition, the girls of Sisters of Nia are frequently asked to perform or serve as volunteers for partner programs, and all of our community events are heavily supported.
We have succeeded in providing such a needed and beneficial entity for young people in the community through our commitment to grass-roots fundraising, and have creatively designed our program with our humble budget.
Your donation will allow us to continue to provide our quality programs and activities to youth in the Sacramento area and will also allow us to grow in capacity.
Thank you in advance for your support as your donation in any amount is greatly appreciated!"
Wishing you many blessings...sincerely,
Founder and Executive Director
