The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation Announces Girls Who Rule The World 2011
The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation Holding Second Annual Girls Who Rule The World Weekend
After a successful debut in 2010, The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation, will host the second annual Girls Who Rule The World Mentoring Weekend (GWRTW) to help teenage girls from diverse backgrounds successfully navigate the pressures and pitfalls of teenage life.
Held on October 28-30, 2011 at the Marriott Evergreen Conference Center, this three-day, two night program will include influential women from business, music and entertainment who will share from their own personal blueprint for success and help the young women selected established long-term goals.
The weekend events ultimately aim to help teenage women build strong peer relationships, increase self-reliance and bolster self-esteem.
Speaking on the event, Marjorie Harvey released a statement saying,
“I am so proud of what we accomplished last year at GWRTW. It was a weekend of personal lessons, encouragement, music and fun! This year we hope to expand on all that was taught last year and also continue to encourage them, boost their self-esteem and let them know that we love and support them.”
The first annual GWRTW weekend included interactive activities and seminars and included a who's who of trusted female partners including Essence Magazine's Mikki Taylor, actress/talk show host Sherri Shepherd, CBS News Correspondent Shannon Els and singer Keri Hilson, among others.
This year's speakers will be announced shortly.
Teenage girls from the ages of 13-18 living in the metro Atlanta, GA area are invited to participate in the second annual GWRTW weekend.
