Stronger Than You Know Conference


Girls Sitting on a Step in Front of School (Stock)


Developed by Ophelia’s Place staff, The Stronger Than You Know Conference addresses the unique challenges girls face as adolescents.

We created this conference to provide counselors, teachers, educators, social workers and other youth-service providers with tools and resources to empower diverse groups of girl-identified youth through a gender-specific and trauma-informed lens.

Session presentations: 

• Acknowledge and address challenges of working with girl-identified youth

• Address topics with a respectful, inclusive and youth-centered approach

• Offer useful strategies to apply in practice when serving youth

The Stronger Than You Know Conference will prepare youth-serving professional to work with girls in: 

• A school setting

• A clinical/therapeutic setting

• A recreation/after-school setting

• Leadership (youth and/or organizational)

At this conference, you will share and learn from other youth-serving professionals, discuss empowerment strategies with experts, and learn from one another in a supportive and informational environment.
