A gathering of girls from the hosting city and neighbouring communities rally together to celebrate female diversity.
The Annual Young Women of Power Conference is held at Foundations for the Future Chartered Academy (FFCA) High School. This conference takes place Friday Night & all day Saturday, May 10-11 2019 for girls between the ages of 12 to 18ish. The speakers are informative, yet entertaining, teaching girls how to live smart gaining tools that will help them to be more confident in who they are. The workshops are interactive and designed to reveal each girl’s unique beauty, helping them celebrate who they are rather than wishing they looked like somebody else.
