Girls Rock! Conferences

The Girls Rock! Conference is an event planned BY girls FOR girls.  The high school girls on the Girls Advisory Board choose topics for the conference that are relevant to them AND YOU!  They are the speakers and the workshop facilitators. In fact, they design the workshops! It’s a  fun filled day of learning, sharing, growing and some girl-powered activism!

Every year in the spring, Hardy Girls has hosted two conferences: one in Waterville and one in Portland. This year we are adding one in Orono at the University of Maine!


Girls Rock! Conferences are open to girls (self-identified, trans girls, and gender expansive youth included) in 4th-8th grade and their chaperones. Registration is $20 per person with full and partial scholarships available. Conferences run from 9am to 1pm (with registration opening at 8:30am). Lunch is included with registration. T-shirt is included with each youth registration.
