Workshops and presentations will encourage meaningful conversations designed to build strong and resilient girls. Topics include improving positive body image, health and wellness, building healthy relationships and enhancing parent-daughter relationships.
Featured speakers include Kristin Bohan, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and executive director of myTERMS, and Julie Marie Carrier, award-winning national speaker, author and success coach for MTV’s hit show “MADE, a self-improvement reality television series that follows teens who are seeking life-changing opportunities.
The program includes a continental breakfast and box lunch.
