My Daughter's Power Circle Retreat

SOAR’s My Daughter’s Power Circle Yearly Retreat the culminating activity of the six and eight-week workshops will take place yearly during the month of October for 20 disconnected, low income, African American women between the ages of 18 and 26 years old who are out of work, out of school, domestic violence survivors, returning citizens, teen moms or college bound who are without support and reside in the Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Maryland metropolitan areas. SOAR is committed to filling the gap left by schools, youth training and life skill training programs that provide a limited time of support for out of school and out of work 18 -26-year-old women.  It is in our mission to act as an extension to existing job training, health and human service and returning citizen programs to help these young women to continue to create powerful life choices. Many hard to place out of school young women are making poor choices which impact their health, career choices and ability to retain employment and academic opportunities. They are unschooled about healthy relationships, financial and physical wellness. SOAR’s My Daughter’s Power Circle seeks to provide a continuum of care for young African American women by introducing them to a variety of healing modalities, life skill, financial, career training coaches and a village of Mother Mentors to support their possibilities. 


The Mother Mentors are an essential intergenerational component provided by women who are over 40 years of age who volunteer to create a safe space of shared knowledge between the two generations.  Each Mother Mentor is responsible for no more than two young women.  The Mother Mentor conducts monthly support circles to continue the process of healing and transformation begun during the retreat for as long as the young women need. These circles are places where the young women consistently remember, recognize, and reclaim their individual power to find strength in the collective power of their sisters.
