These topics will be addressed in each workshop.

1-Brain-storm-in’

Our perceptions of our self in the world drive all aspects of our health. In this workshop the boys will make masks depicting how I see myself vs how the world sees me. Discussion will explore who they are as people; and examine how our nervous system works to keep us healthy.

Children & Youth Programs POWER OF BEING A GIRL PLANNING GROUP 2020 The power of being a girl planning group is a 10-week program for girls 11, 12 & 13 years’ old who want to help plan for the 2020 Power of Being a Girl Conference, Wednesday October 14th, 2020. This is an opportunity to be a part of planning the actual conference; girls will decide on what workshops would have the biggest impact on them, who they would like to have as a keynote speaker, what activities they would enjoy at lunch – and even decide what to have for lunch! The girls will have fun and be encouraged to use their voice while developing planning and leadership skills. Space is limited so sign up soon! Note: The girls are asked to make a 10-week commitment which includes Spring dates, Fall dates and, of course the PBG conference itself! The planning group begins in the spring when the bulk of the planning takes place, and continues in the fall so that they so that can be a part of helping with some of the tasks needed to produce the event.

CHANGE FOR 2020: historically the Power of Being a Girl Conference has been created for girls aged 12-14. Taking into consideration the significant change in culture in earlier development of girls, earlier intervention and prevention has become more important. In 2020, PBG Planning and Conference will be open to girls aged 11-13 and in 2021, the ages will shift to 10-12. This sliding age scale is to ensure that girls who were looking forward to coming and thought they were still in the age range, will not miss out in the planning of PBG or in the Conference.
