Where teen girls go to dream big and build bright futures.

WHY ATTEND? 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 is for girls who want to be leaders and for girls who have dreams! 

After beginning the day with registration, a photo booth and a $500 Fund Your Dream contest, attendees will then hear from inspirational key-note speakers and 4 breakout sessions on:  how to fulfill dreams, how to get to college/pay for college,  explore STEM careers, and leadership. Attendees will leave with tools, ideas, a positive mindset, more confidence and ways to achieve their dreams that they didn’t have before!  Additionally, we will be announcing the four 2016 Brilliant, Beautiful and Bold Role Model award winners at the Summit! 

Don’t forget that the night before, October 28th, we will be hosting a fun VIP reception party so grab your tickets when you register for the Summit! Invite the girl in your life.
