From Berks-Mont SourcesGirls from across Eastern Pennsylvania (GSEP) will have the opportunity to be energized and inspired to dream, set and achieve their goals at the Young Women's Conference: Voice of the Future/A Healthier You on January 10, 2009 from 9 am to 4 pm. The day-long program is being offered by the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania in partnership with Independence Blue Cross.

The conference, open to all girls in ages 13 to 18, even if they are not a Girl Scout, and their parents, will allow girls to discover the range of possibilities available to them in the areas of business, leadership, fitness, fun, well-being, and Girl Scouting.

The event has even been designed by a planning board comprised of older Girl Scouts just for their peers.

Independence Blue Cross will offer an International Healthy Lifestyles program, a fun-filled interactive workshop where girls will learn about nutrition and physical activity from a global perspective.

Other organizations and businesses including Main Line Models and A Multicultural Youth eXchange (MYX), a nonprofit organization working to increase tolerance among young people, along with GSEP staff, will hold workshops on topics such as yoga, fashion, and science.

The conference will be held at the Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School, 201 Germantown Pike in Plymouth Meeting, PA. The program fee is $15 and includes lunch, a patch, door prizes and gift bags.
