COMMUNITY AND CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

Somali women deserve to be connected in their communities and have a strong voice in Minnesota. We believe women can overcome language barriers, racism and religious intolerance to empower themselves and their families to thrive.

Isuroon helps Somali women and girls combat gender disparities and social isolation. Our civic engagement and leadership programs complement each other. Community and civic engagement topics include:

  • Financial literacy and economic prosperity
  • Entrepreneurial support
  • Internship and mentorship programs
  • Citizenship
  • System literacy
  • Voting process, political advocacy and the legislature

For girls:

  • Support for high school graduation and college enrolment
  • Resume building
  • Resilience and confidence building
  • Communication skills including social media and public speaking
