The 5th annual "Imagine You" conference planning is underway. We will continue to host the conference in two locations this year: Irving, Texas and Jackson, Mississippi. The conference is geared towards middle and high school girls and is aimed at promoting health and wellness, career and personal development and positive self-images. Last year, participants attended three sessions:
1. Girls Get Fit: Participants learned about making healthy food choices and participated in Zumba
2. Girls Against Bullying: Participants learned the psychological aspects related to bullying, why people become bullies, how to prevent and overcome it
3. Girl Bosses: Entrepreneurship 101: Participants learned how to come up with a concept and ideas for starting a business.
The 2019 conference topics are under development and are sure to be exciting! Keep checking back for details.
