Is there a cost involved?
Yes. Speaking fees vary depending on the number of presentations given and where the presentations are located. Travel accommodations are an additional cost. Sister Soldier is a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organizaton and the proceeds make our mission and outreach efforts possible.
Are there any cost-effective ways of bringing the program to your community?
Although hiring a speaker can be transformative for students and youth, it can also be difficult when working within a budget. We suggest teaming up with a local school and scheduling assemblies on the same or back-to-back days. In doing so, speaking costs will be discounted and travel fees can be shared. Presenting the assembly to your PTO group or finding local sponsors may also be successful.
