Sisters 4 Sisters is a unique mentoring program for teenage girls at East and Walnut Ridge High Schools. Rather than one-on-mentoring, the girls meet weekly during their lunch period in small groups with facilitators from The Mentoring Center, Communities in Schools and Seal of Ohio Girl Scouts. The program is funded by The Ingram White Castle Foundation.
In its second year, the Sisters 4 Sisters Program has successfully developed a casual style that allows the girls to discuss topics such as Alternatives to Anger, Mother-Daughter Relationships and communication skills. Their activities outside of school, such as attendance at plays, movies and bowling outings, have deepened their appreciation for the importance of friendship among women as sisters.
