SSS uses a holistic approach to foster life skills including self-love, decision-making power, professional development, comprehensive sexual health education, and a variety of relevant topics that serve as a foundation for SSS members to grow into young leaders. Trans women, femmes, and all who identify as young women of color are invited and welcome to join us!
