Girls On The Rise is holding their 4th annual conference on Thursday, June 29th from 9:30 am to 3 pm at the Sierra Health Foundation. Girls On The Rise is a youth empowerment program for young women in South Sacramento which teaches girls how they can make an influential change in their communities through advocacy.

 

Organizers of the event intend to highlight all of the activities Girls On the Rise members take part in year-round, so girls who participate in the event should anticipate an active day of workshops and group activities, and listen to guest speakers and mentors who will teach the participants about Girls On the Rise’s mission.

 

“What [Girls on the Rise] has done for me is that it’s shown me that there are sophisticated women out there who are definitely a presence in business…and it’s just shown me that you can be active in the community and make a change your community just by doing the smallest things,” said attendee Vanessa Tuttle in an interview with AccessLocal in 2014.
