Girls in grades 6-12 will come together to learn about all aspects of advocacy and discover how their passion for civic engagement aligns with opportunities at the local, state, and national level. They will learn that their voice is important and can make a difference in how our cities, counties, states, and country are run. Girls will be trained in public speaking and civics. Local, current, and past officials and politicians will be invited to share their knowledge and experience with girls. A box lunch will be provided, a vegetarian option will be available.
