Across African tradition, from primal times to contemporary history, girls have been guided through each
phase of their lives via formal rituals of preparation and celebration, from birth conception to the ancestral
realm. African rites of passage thought and activities help us direct our energies to higher levels of human
social development. It explores and imparts ways of becoming more productive, conscientious girls and
women, and encourages family bonding and community cohesiveness.

Sisters of Tomorrow utilizes a culturally relevant approach based on African traditions to pass on life-skill
competencies through discussions, training, volunteer service projects, and a range of hands-on activities
— for example, positive image art, African music and dance, quilting, jewelry-making, healthy food
preparation, friendship-building games, and more. All this culminates in truly meaningful rites of passage
ceremonies for Black girls and women.

A group of self-determined African sister-friends (teachers, mothers, community activists, social workers,
and others) formed the original Sisters of Tomorrow in East Palo Alto, California (a.k.a. “Little Nairobi”)  
Sisters of Tomorrow now has 
more than 25-years of successfully guiding our daughters into positive,
proactive African womanhood.
 This uninterrupted history of serving as a volunteer, community-based,
group-building “extended-family”supports the positive development of African American females
throughout their lives.
