We believe “When you stand and share your story in an empowering way, your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else.” - Iyanla Vanzant. Poetry is the tool used to foster positive self-expression and self-discovery. We have empowered over 1,000 young women in middle and high schools throughout the metro Milwaukee area.

My Sista's KeepHer has partnered with the Twilight Program for the remainder of the school year. My Sista’s KeepHer will help young girls develop positive self-image, strong sense of identity, love for sisterhood, and a sense of responsibility to themselves and other girls in the community. Poetry is the primary tool used to foster positive self expression, self discovery, compassion and empathy. Participants will learn more about leadership, goal setting, communication, girl talk, community service, and more. This program is open to young people (ages 12-18) in the city to have a safe place to go during the evening. Youth ages 11 and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. This is a free drop-in program. See all of the twilight enrichment programs here. See the schedule for MY SISTA'S KeepHER in the link below.
