You Are offers conferences for teenage girls. Currently, they are held once a year in Auckland, Hamilton and Whakatane. It is our hope to see these grow throughout New Zealand and beyond. The conferences are open to all teenage girls in school years 8-10.
We also now offer a conference for year 7 girls, held on the Hibiscus Coast.
HBC Year 8- 10: July 12-14th / Registration opens June 12th
North Shore Year 8- 10: August 14th / Registration opens July 12th
Our aim is to equip and empower the girls to be the best version of themselves. The conferences include workshops on 'how we see ourselves," building self-worth, tips and strategies to help combat negative self-talk and thoughts. Workshops on hair, skincare, make-up and creating your own style. They will hear stories and experiences from speakers whose aim is to inspire, motivate and encourage the girls to knowing their worth and living it out in purpose and on purpose.
The girls will be put into groups and given a mentor, who are students in year 12, 13 or studying at university. The mentors (who are positive role models and volunteering their time) will encourage and work with the girls over the conference. The mentors are trained and supported in their role.
We would ask that Mums, Dads, Grandparents, and other important figures in your childs life be available for a 30 min debrief on the last day of the workshop followed by catwalk of each of the girls showing their unique beauty & personality.
