iSisters supports the most vulnerable women in our society – including newcomers to Canada, indigenous women, those fleeing family violence, criminalized women and young mothers working to complete their high school education. Our programs are designed for disadvantaged women facing significant barriers – women who have often been stereotyped and judged throughout their lives. At iSisters, our team recognizes the importance of ensuring the dignity, respect, inclusion, and a non-judgement environment for all learners. We provide them with a familiar space to learn where they feel safe and inclusive.
iSisters classrooms are a regular meeting place for women with shared experiences to safely build connections and networks of support. When a woman leaves iSisters with improved digital skills, greater self-confidence, and a positive interpersonal experience; we’ve accomplished our goal.
