Wise Sister

Coming of Age Circles for Young Girls



Coming of Age Program

Wise Sister Circles is a coming-of-age program dedicated to empowering girls as they embark on their journey to womanhood. We are based in Melbourne's Inner West.  

We pour ourselves wholeheartedly into embracing this journey into womanhood with fun, soul, creativity and love.

WIse Sister is inspired by the Journey of Young Women (JOYW) international mentor training program led by Katherine Krueger. It celebrates the wisdom of our bodies, connection to our feminine intuition, supporting connection to others and the world around us, and caring for our whole selves including social, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing.

Mum's Circles

As part of the Wise Sister Circle we facilitate a mum's circle prior to commencing our work with the girls. 

We meet to care for ourselves, to support our daughters, and to learn about the journey our daughters will embark upon.

The upcoming Mum's Circle will take place on Thursday 29 April, 2021, 7pm-9pm; this is the week before the 4-week girls program commences.

Wise Sister is a holistic wellbeing project created by Cecilia Tankey and Zoe Harris, a couple of inner-west mums who are passionate about positive self-esteem in young people. We are mental health professionals with a zest for life and building up community. 

This project is in its first phase as a pilot program. The finer details are still in development and the current information is likely to move and change as we tailor the program to suit our needs and the needs of families and young people in our inner-west community.
