About this Event

Girls 2 Women Leadership Symposium 2020

Presented by Destiny's Daughters of Promise (DDP)

Theme: Leaders with 20/20 Vision

We are excited to host our 8th Annual Girls 2 Women Leadership Symposium on April 25, 2020. The symposium is designed to provide a way for girls to engage with prominent leaders such as attorneys, veterans, physicians, authors and business owners and other caring adults in the Metro Atlanta area.

The event will be held at North Star Church in Kennesaw, GA. Every year, this event is organized to support Destiny’s Daughters of Promise (DDP) in our work to help youth meet their basic personal and social needs to be safe, feel cared for, and valued.

The event will include:

  • Workshop sessions that focus on such topics as healthy relationships, improving self-esteem, health & nutrition, exploring career paths and more
  • A formal luncheon where youth engage with prominent community leaders and successful women in Metro Atlanta
  • Adult Networking Session - this is an opportunity for adults to network and build connections with other entrepreneurs and professionals and have an opportunity to win a prize. DDP is offering this session again based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received from those who participated in 2019.
  • Vendor tables offering various products and items

MENTORS FOR THE DAY

Volunteer - Mentors for the Day Needed

Women from the Metro Atlanta area are invited to serve as a Mentor for the Day. As a mentor, you will be given a platform where you can share the insights you have learned along the way with teen girls in a small group setting. This event has been planned with women like you in mind. It is tailor-made for professional women to speak, interact and enjoy the day with teen girls, ages 10-18.

Because we need a mentor for each mentee, we ask that you RSVP to confirm your participation by March 31. Registration will close once capacity is reached, so RSVP early!
