Clark University is hosting a day long conference called All Kinds of Girls Conference as an opportunity to bring together individuals from schools that do not have female specific mentoring programs, as well as individuals from outside organizations who work to foster the development of young girls. The conference will focus on how other schools can start impactful programs similar to AKOG*, as well as the importance of fostering the socio-emotional development of adolescent girls.
When and where: The conference will be held at Clark University on April 6th, 2013 and will be a full day program.
Who should attend: Individuals from schools who are interested in starting a program similar to AKOG or who are interested in learning how they can help positively foster adolescent girls’ development.
*All Kinds of Girls (AKOG) is an all-female mentoring program that pairs undergraduate women with 9-12 year old girls from the local community. The aim of AKOG is to help the girls develop their individual identities while promoting self-expression, confidence and mutual understanding. The program runs throughout the academic year and takes place on Saturdays. For more information, visit our website at http://www.clarku.edu/departments/womensstudies/akog.
