Cidra Runs for Bro/Sis’ International Study Program!
The Brotherhood/Sister Sol Associate Director, Cidra M. Sebastien is putting on her running shoes on March 17, 2013 for the NYC Half Marathon. She is dedicating her run to the youth of Bro/Sis participating in the International Study Program (ISP).
Please pledge your support today!
Through ISP youth ages 14 – 18 have the opportunity to spend six months learning about the history, culture and politics of an African or Latin American country before going overseas for a four-week, immersion experience. They complete individual and group projects connected to the country’s culture, economics, government, and people. This year, Bro/Sis is hosting ISP in Haiti and Dominican Republic.
Every stride is a step towards one more youth traveling to Haiti and Dominican Republic as part of the 2013 Bro/Sis ISP Delegation.
Cidra has been a staff member at Bro/Sis since 2001 and Associate Director since 2004. She has co-led the International Study Program to Ghana and South Africa, is a Sister Sol Chapter Leader, and the Liberation Program organizer. Her first race was the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Community 10k in 2009 and she has not been able to stop. March 17, 2013 will mark her sixth half marathon. Victory is in the finish!
