The 4th 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 2018 conference topics are under development and are sure to be exciting! Keep checking back for details. 

Conference locations and dates: 

-Irving, Texas March 3rd, 2018 at Lively Pointe Youth Center.
