The Sister-to-Sister Annual Summit is Approaching!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Calling all middle school girls! Bring a friend and come join Sister-to-Sister’s most popular event—the annual summit!

The summit will be held on Saturday, November 22 at the Mahaney Center for the Arts at Middlebury College. The summit is a full day of events beginning at 9:30 am and continuing until 4:30 pm.

The summit will include activities such as cooking, yoga, improvisation, dancing singing, crafts and slam poetry

Sister-to-Sister, an organization run by Middlebury college students and the American Association of University Women brings together middle school girls from Bristol, Middlebury and Vergennes with Middlebury College student mentors.

With the help of “campus supervisors,” mentors develop experiences that encourage girls to try new things outside of the classroom including such activities as art, music, dance, sign language, and yoga. Sister-to-Sister also focuses on discussions of such topics as body image, women in history, relationships, popularity, self-defense, identity and the internet, and self confidence.

So far, this semester we have had an impromptu game day and a Halloween event, in which we carved pumpkins, took pictures for our scavenger hunt, and competed in some cider donut races. We look forward to continuing the fun and games at the summit.

To RSVP and register for the summit, please contact Emily Pedowitz at (802) 443-5937 or EPEDOWITZ@MIDDLEBURY.EDU
