Sisterhood Schools

Sisterhood School delivers creative programmes for young girls (age 13-17) to build confidence and self esteem. Through our 12-15 week programme (in schools, after school clubs & summer programme) participants create a positive change project for socially or personally relevant issues that impact them from body image to larger social issues such as gender inequality.

“I have learned to not care about what people think about girls playing football. I want to change and challenge stereotypes, so future girls look back and are as shocked about how people treated female footballers like I was shocked at the fact women weren’t allowed to vote 100 years ago.”


“todays girls are tomorrows women -

and leaders.”

The programmes take a design-based approach to help girls explore larger social and systemic issues that affect them. We provide a safe and inclusive space for participants to collaborate together and forge meaningful friendships. Each programme provides young girls with:

The Confidence to Be Themselves

  • Participants identifying key issues that affects their everyday lives to work on. This is done through sharing personal experience, extensive research, debate and discussion. The group comes to a joint agreement on one issue that they have come to care deeply about.

  • Every participant is given a self-reflection journal, which they use to log their processes, learnings and progress through the programme.

The Courage to Act

  • Each participant learns the Double Diamond (see Design Council) method, which they use to go from problem to designed outcome.

  • Working in small groups and big teams to create visual outcomes for their project.

  • Specialist skills training (depending on what skills they require to complete their project) e.g. creative software, pitching, budgeting etc.

The Charisma to Inspire Others

  • Access to creative hubs and spaces - with every programme participants visit a variety of spaces to launch their project from cultural venues, galleries, museums etc.
