The Young Women’s Empowerment Network announced that the third annual GIRL PREP Conference will take place May 1, 2010 from 10 AM to 3 PM at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel. The interactive empowerment conference was created as a response to increased community concern for early intervention in the lives of disadvantaged teen and tween girls aged 10 to 13 years old.
200 inner-city girls from the Los Angeles area will be invited to attend the one-day conference which includes a meet-and-greet with celebrities, live music, lunch, games and gifting to name a few. Workshops will include self-esteem building, team building, leadership, youth engagement and violence prevention.
The Faces of GIRL PREP are Maiara Walsh, Anna Marie Perez de Tagle, Amber Stevens, Francia Raisa, Ashley Argota and special keynote speaker Tamala Jones. In a Perfect World serves as the events title sponsor for the third year in a row. Photo Credit: Keith Munyan.
