Teen Empowerment Summit

The JLW hosted its inaugural Teen Empowerment Summit at the Choir School of Delaware in Spring 2017. We will continue our efforts to empower young women to reach their potential with another Teen Empowerment Summit this fall.

JLW Member Dr. Kesha Clarke discusses healthy relationships at the Spring 2017 Summit.

Teen Empowerment Summit at Choir School of Delaware

JLW members created a one day, comprehensive workshop that focuses on self-esteem and self-confidence and includes discussion around:

  • Self esteem
  • The importance of positive self-talk
  • Encouraging and empowering yourself
  • Healthy Relationships
  • How to recognize and handle toxic relationships
  • How to handle bullying (cyber and in-person)

Young women at the Teen Empowerment Summit pose with confidence coach and educator Taria Pritchett, and “Beyoncé Bucks” created to remind them of their self-worth each day.

JLW members discussed positive and negative messages from the media with Summit attendees.
