Description of Agency: Founded in 1954,  St. Joan Antida High School (SJA) has been committed to the educational needs and life aspirations of young women for over a half-century in Milwaukee. Serving young women (grades 9-12) is at the core of who we are as an organization. St. Joan Antida High School mission calls us to serve those populations most in need, providing access and opportunity to the poor. Our students are young women from some of Milwaukee’s poorest neighborhoods. This year, more than 98% of our diverse student body fell at or below the poverty line. As a city-wide high school, we work with more than 52 partner K-8 schools to recruit and serve a diverse student population. More than 95% of our students are young women of color including 55% Hispanic students and 38% African-American students.

Student Role at the Agency: Over the years due to budget constraints, may extracurriculars have been cut from the budget.  However, this does not serve the students well as education is about the “whole person” and not simply academics.  To support educating our girls through leadership opportunities, as well as giving voice to their passions, we are implementing “Clubs” to our structure.  These clubs will meet on Fridays during the day.  The clubs will be student run and faculty-facilitated.  In addition, we need a student to assist with leading in all aspects of the club (the clubs are JUST being formed this year!):                                                                                                                   

 

The Clubs we are beginning and need assistance with are as follows:
