International Day of the Girl




The first annual International Day of the Girl in Kansas City was a hit! 

The first

To commemorate the United Nations International Day of the Girl, WE ARE WONDER WOMEN will be a day to celebrate and empower middle school aged girls in Kansas City, Kan. This one-day seminar will connect the girls with accomplished professionals assisted by high school peers and young adult mentors for a day of inspiration and education. Sessions will focus on mindset, choices, and skills girls need to be Wonder Women – creating a more vibrant, healthy and peaceful world.
