East Los Angeles College’s Outreach and Recruitment department sponsored a Girls Empowerment Conference in partnership with LA County Department of Parks and Recreation on November 10, 2018.
It encouraged girls to turn up the volume on their own voices, and believe in a life of endless possibilities by building confidence, exploring pathways to college and living their dreams.
This empowering event offered girls and young women ages 11-18 an opportunity to build confidence, further their education, and encouraged them to live their lives to the fullest! The Girls Empowerment Conference also provided girls with an opportunity to go on a campus tour of East Los Angeles College, network and much more.
Speakers of the conference included Tiffiny Townend Blacknell, Attorney-Public Defender; Mónica Gárcia, President of the Board of Education, LAUSD; Kristie Hernandez, Director, Program Operations of UCLA Veteran Affair Relations; Christine Simmons, President & COO of Los Angeles Sparks.
East Los Angeles College strives to provide girls with meaningful experiences that help enhance their lives by providing them with useful tools and pathways for a prosperous future.
