Table TalkN Interview: My Sister Circle

Good Day All:

Today, we want to introduce you to an organization founded by our dear friend, Kyra Watts. If you don’t know Kyra, we’ll tell you that she is feisty, funny, and full of wit. She is a go-getter and always on the move to make things happen. She has been a great friend to us over the years and just as she supports us, we definitely want to support her in every way we can. In saying that, we want to highlight her organization, My Sister Circle, on today as they embark upon their formal introduction to their local community with their Spring Fundraising Luncheon. As we support her and My Sister Circle, we want to ask that you all (our virtual community) do the same. It’s an awesome, much needed vision that is actually being established. With that, we introduce you to My Sister Circle.

My Sister Circle is a non-profit organization serving women in the Metro Detroit community. Our mission is to provide the resources to encourage healthy relationships between women of all ages; by focusing on the key areas of faith, financial responsibility, education/professionalism, health, community service and self-worth.

This organization was created to serve an undeniable need for better relationships between women. I took the personal experiences I had with various women in my life (including the wife of this blog!!), and I wanted to create the opportunity for young women to be influenced in the same way I was by these relationships. In addition to community based programs created to engage and educate the women in our community, My Sister Circle will also be sponsoring a mentoring program that will host over 15 participants in its first year. The My Sister Circle Mentoring Program (MSC-MP) uses a group approach to mentoring and matches a young women from each of three age groups to an older mentor. The MSC-MP program uses a “reach forward, give back” method to mentoring in order to encourage a higher level of accountability with all participants and to reinforce the concept of each age group being responsible for impacting the lives of the others.

On Saturday May 11, 2013 My Sister Circle will be formally introduced to the Metro Detroit community. We will be hosting our Spring Fundraising Luncheon, at Kara’s House (Banquet Facilities) in Redford, MI. All proceeds raised at this event will go towards fall program planning the sponsorship of participants in the first group of the MSC-MP. If you are interested in purchasing a ticket, feel free to contact me at kwatts@mysistercircle.org.

If you can’t be the change you want to see in the world, support My Sister Circle and help us do it!
