Youth conference focuses on wealth building strategies

The Philadelphia Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority will hold the Juanita Kidd Stout Memorial Conference for Youth, Succeeding Against the Odds: Staying Focused in Uncertain Times, on Saturday, April 18th.  The conference, for students grades 5-12, is designed to inform young people about wealth building strategies through hands-on activities that provide knowledge about earning, saving, investing and making money.

The conference is presented in honor of one of the sorority’s most prestigious members, the late Juanita Kidd Stout, the first African American woman in America to be elected judge, serving in the Municipal and Common Pleas Courts in Philadelphia and serving the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court.

In addition to interactive workshops, it will feature a youth entrepreneur showcase including jewelry, t-shirts, natural skincare products, unique handbags and tote bags. Participants will also receive a free gift bag, t-shirt, wealth building materials and more.

The conference will be held at University of Pennsylvania, Houston Hall, 3417 Spruce Street Philadelphia.  Registration will begin at 8:15am.   For more information, go here or email or call 215-248-3388.
