Event Description

For Girls Ages 11-18

To promote girl power, the Latinitas Teen Leadership Institute members are organizing a Latina Power conference for local middle and high school girls. This event is geared toward encouraging girls to build confidence, discover their voice, express themselves and make wise decisions. The event will feature informative and inspirational workshops, guest speakers, panelists, and multimedia presentations led by local female leaders on topics such as body image, confidence, peer pressure, media literacy, leadership, healthy relationships, cultural identity and bullying. Girls will discuss the challenges facing girls today and explore positive ways to deal with stress through hands-on creative expression activities revolving around poetry, acting, photography, art and song. Girls will also enjoy dance performances and music entertainment. The event is open to girls ages 11-18. Admission is $5 and covers lunch. Space is limited, so pre-registration is required.
