Girls: Learn How to Change the World

January 21, 2011

Do you have a teenage girl who wants to rock our world?   Here’s a conference where she can develop skills to create the world she wants –  to recognize when to respect, adapt and stand up for what she believes in, and gain the skill and confidence for protecting her rights and the rights of others.

Girls For a Change will hold its annual conference for girls, “The World You Want – Respect, Adapt, Stand up” on Saturday, 2/26/11 at MSU’s Strand Union Building.

The conference has been organized by a core group of 18 girls in grades 8 to 12 and will include many new, exciting workshops as well as old favorites!  Workshops this year include: writing, how to start your own business now, West African drumming and dancing, how to go to and pay for college, sushi making, do-it-yourself fashion, healthy relationships, yoga, international travel and many more! Click here to see all the workshops and read the descriptions.

The keynote speaker will be Jane Olson, an international justice and human rights advocate former chairwoman of the International Board of Human Rights Watch and the board of Survivor Corps (formerly known as “Landmine Survivors Network”).

Mom, if you’re bringing your daughter in from out-of-town (or even if you live here in Bozeman), you may also want to attend the keynote luncheon and/or the women’s workshops.  It’s a great way to become engaged with the community and hear from a humanitarian leader while supporting girls from across our state!  You can even earn CEUs.

The cost for girls is $20 (with limited scholarships available); for women it is $150 for a full day, $100 for a half-day or $35 for just the keynote luncheon.    Click here for more information and to download the registration form.  For just the luncheon reservations contact Girls for a Change at gfac@allthrive.org or by calling Price or Vanessa at 406.587.3840.

Girls for a Change is a grassroots initiative designed to empower girls to embrace their future with confidence and support, “secure in their ability to lead and achieve self-sufficiency, fulfillment, balance and success.”
