Celebrate Sisters is a mentoring organization founded by two sisters, Dr. Ja’Wanda S. Grant, PhD and Dr. Jalarna J. Grant, MD, in honor of all of the women who inspired their success. The vision of Celebrate Sisters is to inspire and equip young ladies (ages 10-21) to pursue their purpose by providing mentorship, educational workshops, scholarships, and promoting sisterhood.  

Celebrate Sisters promotes (Celebrates) women entrepreneurs, educators, and those who serve their communities.  Through this network, Celebrate Sisters is able to connect young ladies to various resources such as:

  • mentorship
  • workshops on women’s health, professional and personal development, and academic success  
  • academic scholarships and college preparation resources 
  • inspirational blogs and informative podcasts

Celebrate Sisters is about giving back, supporting and celebrating others, and providing equal access to knowledge so that our sisters (all ages and races) can reach their goals and dreams.  No dream is better than another.  Success is not the same for everyone.  Our goals is to help EACH person define and achieve their OWN success.

If you’d like to connect your daughter, niece, or other young lady to this organization, please email celebratesisters2@gmail.com!
