It is with regret and disappointment that we have cancelled the Girls Rock! Conferences due to the health risks posed by COVID-19. As you are aware, health concerns hit much closer to home this week.
Our conferences bring so many young people together in coalition and the consequences of cancelling weigh heavily on us. However, the consequences of not cancelling felt much more dire. It is a decision we did not take lightly.
The Girls Advisory Board (our high-school group who plans and runs the conferences) will meet soon to discuss how to offer any portions of the conference online. We will provide updates on this very soon.
Please take care of yourself. Wash hands often. And thank you for standing with girls.
Girls Rock! Conferences are 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! GAB members design the workshops, are the speakers, and the workshop facilitators too. It’s a fun-filled day of learning, sharing, growing and includes lots of girl-powered activism!
The conferences are open to girls* in grades 4-8 and their chaperones. Registration is $20 per person with full and partial scholarships available. Lunch and a t-shirt are included with your registration. Conferences run from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.
Thank you to our 2020

Hardy Girls Healthy Women takes girls* seriously through year-round, statewide programs that put the power in their hands to challenge a society that ignores their brilliance. We dare adult allies to join us in standing with girls.
* self-identifying girls and gender expansive folks.
