About Sisters 4 Success

Sisters 4 Success was created in 2002 as a result of a pilot program developed by Ruth Ann Gaines at East High School to address the needs of African-American girls who were exhibiting negative behaviors and low self-esteem at school. After meeting with African-American female community leaders and heads organizations, it was suggested that the East High model be expanded to other high schools. Sisters 4 Success, a district program whose purpose is to develop the leadership skills of African-American and African immigrant/refugee girls, was expanded across the district.

Mission Statement:

We inspire minds by creating an academic community that challenges students to engage in their futures.

Vision Statement:

The Sisters 4 Success program will be the model for mentoring programs involving females of color in the United States.

Core Values:

We believe that all students will make choices in middle school that will affect the rest of their lives.

  • Respect: We will strive to feel and/or show honor to our families, students, teachers, and community members
  • Perseverance: We will continue to work as hard as we can with our mission, goals, and tasks until they are mastered
  • Build: We will embrace “the process” of doing the things we need to do in order to accomplish our mission, vision, and core values
