Sisters of Nia, Incorporated is an organization dedicated to serving adolescent girls in grades 6, 7, and 8 living in urban communities. Through the teaching of Afrocentric values, our program aims to reinforce and bring out the natural strengths of girls, while encouraging them to live their live with a purpose.
Camp Nia is open to girls ages 11-14 and includes lunch and snacks. With an Afrocentric foundation, the camp addresses self-esteem, self-confidence, self-control, self-expression, cultural awareness, health & exercise, and proper diet via the performing arts. Four classes are offered: vocals, dance, drama, and stage design, and the girls select two classes to focus on for the duration of the camp. Classes are taught by experienced professionals who are assisted by high school and/or college students experienced in the craft being taught. The entire two weeks of Camp Nia are spent preparing for a culminating performance which is open to the community. The camp registration fee is $100 and due no later than July 15.
Sisters of Nia, Inc. seeks to empower socially and economically disadvantaged adolescent girls by providing cultural and educational programs designed to instill strong social skills, leadership development, and academic excellence in our young ladies.
To inspire, encourage, and empower girls to reach their fullest potential and live their life with a purpose.
We believe each girl has the potential to be successful.
We believe each girl has the ability to change and to create change.
We believe it is essential that each girl be taught to maintain a balance between personal and emotional health, personal growth, and self-care.
