“Sister’s Circle provides long-term mentoring to foster meaningful and sustainable change in the lives of girls and young women in Baltimore."
Founded in 2000, Sisters Circle is a unique and proven combination of programming and resources to provide a comprehensive approach to mentor girls in grades 6-12 and beyond. The goal is to foster aspirations in young women, whose background puts them at risk for failure, by providing them a stable adult relationship and a variety of programs over a seven-year period. Sisters Circle provides guidance for those preparing for college and continues their support while in college as well as helping with career resources.
Through academically oriented programs, school choice guidance, summer placement, enrichment programs and career exploration, Sisters Circle girls gain exposure to the world and academic confidence to succeed.
The Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle selected Sisters Circle for a two-year grant in 2016 to help expand its after-school program and pilot a summer leadership program, enabling the organization to increase the number of girls it serves from 125 to 250.
