Participants include juvenile justice professionals, mental health professionals, advocates, education system, child welfare system, students, health care professionals, researchers, philanthropists, parents/caregivers, volunteers, and concerned citizens. The summit is building community through highlighting innovative programming, advocacy, and research that challenges individuals to shift how they respond to girls.
Our signature workshop is Girl-Centered Principles in Practice:
Three core principles of girl-centered practice are explored: girls as experts, mutuality and honoring the lived experiences of girls. Join this discussion-based workshop to learn how to implement the key elements of girl-centered practice in day to day interactions with girls.
