Young Women’s Conference: Voice of the Future/A Healthier You

Posted by on January 5, 2009

Girls from across Eastern Pennsylvania will be energized and inspired to dream, set and achieve their goals at the Young Women’s Conference: Voice of the Future/A Healthier You, sponsored by the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania and Independence Blue Cross on January 10th.

The conference, open to all girls in ages 13 to 18, even if they are not Girl Scouts, and their parents, will allow girls to discover the range of possibilities available to them in the areas of business, leadership, fitness, fun, well-being, and Girl Scouting. The event has even been designed by a planning board comprised of older Girl Scouts just for their peers.

Independence Blue Cross will offer an International Healthy Lifestyles program, a fun-filled interactive workshop where girls will learn about nutrition and physical activity from a global perspective. Other organizations and businesses including Main Line Models and A Multicultural Youth eXchange (MYX ), a nonprofit organization working to increase tolerance among young people, will hold workshops on topics such as yoga, fashion, and science.

The conference will take place from 9am-4pm at Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School, 201 Germantown Pike in Plymouth Meeting. The program fee is $15 and includes lunch, a patch, door prizes and gift bags. To register, go here.
