What exactly does Sisters of Strength teach girls?
Ultimately, Sisters of Strength teaches high school girls that they are beloved daughters of God. This is achieved through a beautiful progression in the curriculum. It begins with friendship, because that is what we have found the girls are most concerned about. Then Sisters of Strength teaches the girls about their identity. The goal is for the girls to see themselves through the eyes of God and enter into a relationship with Him. The final section is on purpose and God’s plan for His daughters.

The curriculum objectives are the following:

What is the structure of Sisters of Strength?
You’ll begin each lesson with an icebreaker question that welcomes the girls and warms up the conversation. After the icebreaker, you should teach the lesson. The lesson is followed by journaling time in the Sisters of Strength Journal, which in turn is followed by small group discussion. The digging deeper portion of the lesson gives the girls an opportunity to begin to study the Bible in a simple way. The final portion of your time together should be spent in prayer partner time, which is an opportunity for the girls to pray with and for each other.
How long is a Sisters of Strength lesson?
Each lesson has been designed to be completed in one hour, making it an ideal offering before or after school. However, there are many ways the lessons of Sisters of Strength can be used. Another option is offering Sisters of Strength during school lunch. This would require splitting each lesson in half, taking two weeks for each. The lessons have suggested timing for each section to help you see how you can adapt the material and keep things on track.
