iSisters’ programs enhance employability skill development, provide a critical and effective stepping stone to improved quality of life, and initiate long term and high impact positive change for marginalized women.
Each program is designed in collaboration with the partner organization and customized for the specific learning needs of the students. While each program is unique, all programs aim to help women: learn about technology, explore career options, encourage life-long learning, gain self-esteem, improve earning potential and economic independence.
iSisters learning programs are aligned to ISTE NETS (International Society of Technology in Education National Education Technology Standards) and the Conference Board of Canada’s Employability Skills 2000+.
