Girls Empowerment and Mentorship Symposium 2013
"Who Runs the World? GIRLS!"
The concept for this day-long symposium was developed in response to an overwhelming need for preconception health and educational improvements among young women and girls in Central Brooklyn. One hundred girls from Brooklyn will participate in this day-long program. Throughout the day, participants will engage in interactive activities that promote community health and wellness. This year's program will also include a dynamic "Parent Seminar," designed to parallel the girls' workshops. Through a series of group-based training and learning activities, parents will acquire useful tools and information to support the growth and development of our girls.

We look forward to making this year's event an amazing experience for all of our girls. After all, they do RUN THE WORLD!
