All conference events, speakers, and workshops focus on three key objectives:
The Mission of the Conference is to create a safe forum for Marin’s teenage girls to explore their place in the world, gain skills to create positive relationships, learn confidence to make good choices and to experience local community support that makes their dreams reality
Create a safe, fun informative event for teen girls to learn, share and grow; to provide effective tools to help them be successful as they navigate the teen years; to meet MWC mission/objective as to providing leadership to teen girls.
After conducting research and focus groups, the Marin Women’s Commission created the first Marin Teen Girl Conference in 2011 to address the unmet needs of teen girls in the County. Through the Marin Teen Girl Conference, the MWC provides tools, resources, ideas and support to empower the young women of Marin County. The girls, who range in age from 13 to 18 years, reported that they enjoyed having a safe, collaborative and fun place to explore topics that were important to them. The Conference connects the girls to resources, offers leadership training, and introduces them to thoughts beyond their world.
