Sponsors are needed to support this year’s annual Y Power of Being a Girl conference.
The YM/YWCA empowerment event has grown to involve more than 125 girls between the ages of 12 and 14 who learn about the pressures they face growing up and how to overcome negative stereotypes, build strong self-esteem and have healthy relationships.
Sponsorships of $50 per participant are needed and can be made online at kamloopsy.org/girlpower or at any Kamloops Y location.
The one-day event, slated for Oct. 16, is designed by girls for girls so they learn about empowerment in a fun way.
Workshop topics include bullying, body image and Internet safety.
The event has always drawn strong support from the community and donations to this year’s conference will continue that tradition.
