Shine Brightly Summit

2018 DATES To Be Determined



The event where teen girls go to dream big and build bright futures. The Girls Rule! Foundation is calling all girls for a day of education, entertainment and empowerment. The Annual Shine Brightly Teens and Women Summit is designed specifically for teen girls and the moms (or women/guardian/mentee/aunt/Dad) who support them. 

This summit is for girls who have big dreams!

You will begin the day with registration, light breakfast, a photo booth and a $500 Fund Your Dream contest, then attendees will then hear from inspirational key-note speakers and 3 breakout sessions that will help them learn tools, ideas, a positive mindset, more confidence and ways to achieve their bright future that they didn’t have before!  Additionally, we will be announcing the four 2017 Brilliant, Beautiful and Bold Role Model award winners at the Summit.
