By Will Deyamport

On this episode, I Zoom in Courtney Grady and we chat about Unique Sisters, an education mentoring organization she founded. Courtney Grady is the Founder and Executive Director of Unique Sisters all girls mentor program. Courtney founded Unique Sisters in January 2015 and is currently supporting 25 girls from surrounding Metro Detroit communities. Courtney’s passion has always lied within youth development services believing in the power of young people. Holding close to a decade worth of experience in k-12 education in Detroit Public Schools Community District as a student intervention data analyst she understands the importance of academic success in urban communities. Upon developing Unique Sisters she designed and implements their “Four Pillars of Success” curriculum that is targeted towards social-emotional support. Their organizational values of “Self-Awareness, Community Engagement, Academic Preparation, and Family Engagement” carries their work throughout the Metro Detroit community. As she encourages her girls to “Reach For The World” she knows it takes a village to support the mission of Unique Sisters. She has built successful corporate partnerships and community network support from Starbucks Coffee Foundation, dPOP! at Quicken Loans, Michigan State University, DROUGHT Juice, Enjoy Detroit, and many more community organizations. Recently, Courtney and her executive team launched their “I Am My Own” girl empowerment movement that encourages young girls across the country to “believe in who they are by their own definition”. Courtney and her team believe that Unique Sisters is God’s assignment of mentorship to young people, so they are taking their movement across the country. As her works has just begun there is always opportunity to keep growing. Join the movement today and build with Courtney. Visit www.myuniquesisters.org to stay in touch with programming events!
