In-Person Event
Invitation Only

The EmpowHer Girls to Greatness Teen Summit is scheduled to be held on Friday, April 29, 2022 | 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM PST. The goal of the summit is to expose 400+ EmpowHer girls, ages 11-18, to a day of empowerment, education, mentoring, and exposure to varying career opportunities in fields underrepresented by women of color. The day will include interactive workshops with renowned women business professionals, student project presentations, (the top three Student Projects will be scored by selected judges), a keynote speaker, and the Rising Star Awards Ceremony–honoring women under the age of 25 years old who have achieved greatness and serve as role models for our girls.

This year’s theme: Forging Our Paths to Success refers to the powerful leadership young women have in taking control of their own destiny. This year we will be in-person on the campus of Los Angeles Trade Tech.

Sponsorships are still available. For more information on how you can support the Girls to Greatness Teen Summit: Forging Our Paths to Success. Contact sheila@empowher.org

Hello Sunday

 

The Rising Star Award is presented annually to exceptional women, under the age of 25 years old, who have boldly broken ceilings and challenged systemic barriers to create a path for girls and women to achieve greatness. It is our way of thanking these incredible young trailblazers for shattering misconceptions and redefining expectations for girls everywhere.

EmpowHer Student Project Competition

Our eighth and ninth grade classes have been challenged to identify a social justice issue that has historically been impacted by the War on Drugs and develop a project proposal outlining how a STEAM technique can be used to address the problem. The challenge is designed to foster innovation, engage in social justice, and develop 21st Century Skills – critical thinking, communication and collaboration. In completing the challenge, students must: (1) identify and learn about a pressing issue related to the War on Drugs that impacts young women in their community; (2) use creativity and innovation; (3) communicate with group members to complete assignments; and (4) work in groups of 1-15 girls to conduct research and develop a project proposal presentation. The top three teams in each grade level are pre-selected to present their project proposal to a panel of judges during the Girls to Greatness Teen Summit. Judges will award first ($1000), second ($500), and third ($250) prizes to the winners in each grade level.

Get Involved: Become a Mentor

As a mentor, you will virtually meet with a small group of middle/high school girls and share your story. As a successful leader, your journey of success both challenges and inspires our girls to believe in themselves, their potential to achieve and to overcome obstacles. Your story is a fearless example to all young people to create their own stories of accomplishment.

All mentors commit to attending the Girls to Greatness Teen Summit: Forging Our Paths to Success.

Mentors are required to:
(1) Submit application, including a headshot photo (jpeg)
(2) Attend one mandatory mentor orientation (TBA)
(3) Participate in interactive virtual mentoring session with a small group of 3-4 girls (1:00pm – 2:00pm)
