SSLC grew out of a 2013 two-week leadership seminar based on Sadie Nash Leadership Project Sisterhood Model and was co-created by Executive Director Wakumi Douglas and court-involved girls ages 14-17.

S.O.U.L Sisters Leadership Collective was incorporated in August 2014 in New York City and Miami.
