Stand 4 Sisterhood
Dallas, Texas, USA
MissionStand 4 Sisterhood, founded by Marguritte S. Johnson, officially established in Dallas, TX on December 21, 2016, with a mission to strategically strengthen the socio-economic conditions of underserved girls and women via mentoring, personal growth, professional development, prevention, and peer to peer support.
The purpose of S4S is to eliminate the economic, mental, and social barriers for girls and women resulting in poverty, gender inequality, and relentless cycles of abuse and addiction.
Furthermore, the vision of S4S is to enrich girls and women globally with a foundation of identity that empowers them to live, lead, and leave a legacy for generations to follow.
What We DoTo bring sincere support, hope, and sustainability to girls and women, S4S reintegrates the power of 'Each one, Reach one' via the strategic implementation of inter-generational mentoring.
4Core: Mentoring 4 Generations Network serves as a catalyst of change to catapult our society into proactive solutions by presenting opportunities for girls and women from all generations to connect, engage, and exchange life experiences while paying it forward as a collective cohort.
S4S is committed to investing in our future... the extraordinary girls of our communities via our LEVEL-UP Initiative with Innovation Design Entrepreneurship Academy (DISD School) and via our annual 7-Day Life Enrichment Camp: Diamonds in the Rough.
Both programs focus on Life Skills, STEM, Financial Literacy, Tutoring, College & Career Readiness, Entrepreneurship, Diversity, Mental Health, Wellness/Self-Care, Communication, Family Dynamics, and SMART Goals.
Since its establishment, S4S has empowered 4000+ girls and women via our advocacy and awareness outreach, provided meals, clothing, and hygiene products to 5000+ within the homeless and domestic violence communities, distributed backpacks filled with school supplies to 5000+ youth in LMI areas, awarded $4600 in scholarships, and since the onset of COVID-19 supplied PPE (masks, gloves, and sanitizing wipes), fresh produce and dry food boxes to 7500+ families impacted by the ongoing pandemic.
Michelle Obama stated it best, "When girls are educated, their countries become stronger and prosperous."
