Why should a teen attend this conference?

We all know that as a teen it is imperative to have a safe place that allows teens to be vulnerable and open to learning about important topics that can and will affect their lives. This is why we created the Teen Conference. The goal of the day is for every attendee to walk out with their heads held a little higher with focus on growth mindset and a better understanding of self-love.

The day will involve a parent session, activities, lunch, and a guest panel discussing life transitions.
