COVID-19 UPDATE

At iSisters – staff, board and contractors are working remotely. The good news is to date we do not believe that any of our partners or learners have been affected by COVID-19.

We are currently offering our programs online by our instructors. The response has been amazing with technology mentoring being provided at three partner agencies. Thanks to our instructors for a job well done!

During this pandemic we have looked at opportunities which will develop our programs even further: online programs (Regional and National), short videos on YouTube to assist our learners practise their skills, an entrepreneurship program, employment mentoring and more.

Our Board of Directors have just completed a three-year Strategic Plan 2020-2023. We are excited about the future of iSisters and we believe this Plan will elevate iSisters to the next level of assisting women through technology mentoring.

Our Newsletter – iCONNECT was published the beginning of June and monthly thereafter.

We encourage staff, learners and volunteers to practice social distancing and self isolation. Together we will get through this difficult time together.
