Girls Empowerment Network
The mission of Girls Empowerment Network is to ignite power in girls by teaching them skills to thrive and believe in their ability to be unstoppable. Funding will support the We Are Girls Conference in Dallas, designed especially for 3rd - 8th grade girls and the adults who care about them. This year's theme is "Believe It and Be It; A Celebration of the 19th Amendment.' The conference will take place in late spring of 2020. Previous conferences, held in Austin and Houston, have attracted 400-800 attendees and they work in partnership with youth-serving nonprofits to provide a diversity of breakout workshop options, including body image, career exploration, STEM, self-care, media literacy, healthy relationships, puberty and more. They are seeking out Dallas-based nonprofit partners to offer civic engagement and 19th Amendment related breakout sessions. They serve over 6,000 girls across Texas.
