On Thursday, March 5th, 2020, the YWCA Niagara Region presents 13th Annual Power of Being a Girl Conference! This one day conference, hosted by the Skills Development team of the YWCA, is a day of empowerment, learning and leadership for 250 grade 10 women-identified (cisgender, trans and non-binary) youth. This event gathers youth from across the Niagara Region for discussions and workshops on human rights, inclusion, experiencing and overcoming barriers and approaches to healing.
This year, we plan to provide a welcoming space for discussion, group activities and workshops and a healthy lunch. Our day also includes a talk by guest speaker Faduma Mohamed, a spoken word poet, storyteller, artist educator and advocate.
