WHAT IT IS: GEMfest is more than a conference -- it is a festive celebration where middle school girls can get information and inspiration to take on middle school, high school and the world! GEMfest attendees will hear two inspiring keynote speeches, learn from an informative panel and select from one of eight hands-on workshops teaching skills for success such as public speaking, finding your drive, coding and telling your story. Girls will also have an opportunity to take a celebratory photo with our GEMfest X The Confetti Project pop-up.
WHO IT IS FOR: Middle school girls in grades 6 through 8 who want to meet like-minded peers, connect with high school students who just get it, and learn from inspiring and approachable female mentors to develop healthy habits for life.
WHY ATTEND: Become part of the Girls Empowerment Movement to make changes in your life, your school, your community and the world. Come to learn the skills you need to be confident, speak up, feel great and make your dreams into realities. Join us if you want to have a fun day and leave feeling unstoppable! Oh, and did we mention free snacks, a delicious lunch and a gift bag full of awesome swag...
