Start a Club

Thank you for your interest in starting an I Am My Sister Club!

I Am My Sister Club is a bi-weekly teen led group that prepares teen girls for a successful future through leadership development, peer support and community service all WHILE HAVING FUN!

It’s more than a club…it’s a SISTERHOOD

There is something powerful that happens when “sisters” join together to learn, grow, support and encourage each other. We exist to help young ladies learn how to build healthy relationships, build self-esteem, develop leadership skills, and recognize the value of community service.

How It Works?

I Am My Sister Club can be started by any high school girl or interested adult (school counselor, teacher, or administrator; youth group or club leader, team coach, or concerned mom, etc.) looking for a way to improve the self-esteem, confidence, and leadership skills of high school girls can start an I Am My Sister Club. Middle school clubs are available, but must be started by an adult Program Sponsor. We also have a version for “College Girls”.

I Am My Sister Clubs are designed to reach ALL high school girls. Most clubs are hosted as an afterschool club at school. However, we welcome non-traditional Clubs (home school, athletic teams, youth groups, churches, neighborhood clubs, etc.) as well. We encourage high school girls to think outside the box if their school is unable to host I Am My Sister Club meetings before or after school.

There’s no cost to host an I Am My Sister Club. However, club members attending clubs outside of schools pay $25 annual membership dues.

There’s SIX EASY steps to start an I Am My Sister Club:

Step 1:

Find a club meeting location.
If you’re planning on starting a club at your school, confirm club requirements with your school and complete the school permission form.

Step 2:

You must have a school faculty member at your school to serve as a club advisor. This does not apply to adults starting clubs in schools or in non-traditional settings. However, teens starting a club outside of schools must have an adult club advisor. If you’re having a hard time finding an advisor, feel free to reach out to your local I Am My Sister office or the Corporate Office if there’s not a local office in your area.
*Advisors that’s not faculty of a participating school must complete our volunteer application (include the link).

Step 3:

You must have at least five (5) girls to start a club. Start recruiting your starting members for your club. In order for your club to operate every school year, you must have a minimum of five (5) members. If you have more than five 5 members you are off to an amazing start!
