Teen Girls

For more than 20 years, the Teen Girls Programs at Family Matters – Sisters of Strength (for girls 14-19) and Sisters of Unity (for girls 11-13) have facilitated life-enhancing leadership and community-building opportunities for young women in the North of Howard community of Rogers Park.

The programs provide a space for young women to think critically, explore new opportunities, and take risks within a challenging and safe environment. The programs give particular attention to supporting girls in exploring options and making healthy choices in areas that most impact them – identity, education, health, sexuality, relationships and careers.

The young women are afforded meaningful opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills in ways that strengthen the community and the world around them.
