Coleman, who lives on St. John, founded Sisterhood Agenda, an award-winning nonprofit organization to help girls and women enhance their self-knowledge, self-development and self-esteem.

After graduating from Princeton University in 1992 and starting her organization in 1994, Coleman returned to school to pursue her MBA from University of Phoenix to gain the skills she needed to grow Sisterhood Agenda in a responsible and sustainable way.

Today, her programs, curricula and Global Training Academy address the heath, cultural, social and economic needs of girls and women locally and worldwide.

Sisterhood Agenda activities in the Virgin Islands include the Sisterhood/Brotherhood Career and Life Skills Training Program, A Journey Toward Womanhood implementation, and the Annual Sisterhood/Brotherhood Agenda New Year’s Eve Youth Extravaganza. Sisterhood Agenda collaborates with many V.I. agencies and nonprofit entities and is planning its Inaugural Global Sisterhood Conference in St. Thomas.
