The Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit (S2S) is a 2-day empowerment summit connecting 500 high school girls of Pan-African descent from underserved areas across NYC with women making a difference in the areas of media, health and wellness, entertainment, education, and personal growth. Participants engage in workshops, live entertainment, and reflective activities. Utilizing a 3 step-process of self-awareness, self-appreciation, and self-actualization the summit equips participants with fundamental tools to make well-informed decisions today and in the future. S2S is held every March during Women’s History Month.
