Community Purpose
There are no women centers, Girl Scouts, or YWCA's on St. John. However, we have Sisterhood Agenda to serve the unique needs of women and girls. A land parcel in Cruz Bay has been secured for the Sisterhood Empowerment Academy (SEA), an eco-friendly resource center.

The SEA consists of 1,680 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting spaces with a multi-media center, and library. The facility includes organic fruit, vegetable, and herb gardens with ocean views.

What's your passion?

  • Youth Development
The local environment and market in St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands (aka Love City) supports the highest and best use of a land parcel in Cruz Bay as Sisterhood Agenda’s Sisterhood Empowerment Academy (SEA).

Empowerment is a process by which people, organizations, and communities gain mastery over issues of concern to them. Inspired by Mother Nature, the Sisterhood Empowerment Academy (SEA) empowers women and girls as a female resource center: a place of knowledge, support, self-determination, and healing.

Sisterhood is a place to be, a place to be loved in, and a place to love.

*Sisterhood Agenda is the fiscal sponsor for the St. John Youth Coalition and the SEA will also serve as the coalition's headquarters.
