Empowerment Experience Expo

Power Girls

The 2016 Back to School Empowerment Experience is scheduled for Sunday, September 25th at the historic Alhambra Ballroom in Harlem, New York. The event, produced by women for teen girls between the ages of 11-19, will be Educational, Entertaining and Fun!

This inspiring event will offer self-esteem, confidence building and empowerment workshops, college and career counseling, “Women in Power” panels, and a Back-To-School Fashion Show. Teens and their parents will have the opportunity to hear from trailblazing women from television and film, authors, social activists, entrepreneurs, fashion designers and star athletes discuss their paths to success. The Expo will arm teens with information and experiences that will help them move more boldly into adulthood.

By engaging and speaking with our next generation of young women, The Power of You Teens seeks to develop tomorrow’s agents of change who understand their self-worth and how they can make a positive impact in their community and the world.

Scheduled Programming:

The importance of a formal education to support the passions and talents of our young people is understood by many. The Power of You Teens envisions a society where every young girl knows she has the potential for greatness and seeks to provide them with the necessary tools to reach their potential. There are several grant and scholarship programs available below the collegiate level that we will encourage families to take advantage of. This seminar will inform parents and teens of the steps they can take to ensure that their child receives the best education possible.

Hear trailblazing women in Television/Film, Authors, Social Activists, Entrepreneurs, Doctors, Fashion Designers and Star Athletes discuss their paths to success. Their personal stories of triumph will undeniably motivate young women and their parents to stay focused on their dreams and stay true to who they are. They will discuss topics such as cyber-bullying, self-esteem, and career building.
