You Are offers conferences for teenage girls. Currently, they are held once a year in Auckland, Hamilton and Whakatane. It is our hope to see these grow throughout New Zealand and beyond. The conferences are open to all teenage girls in school years 8-10.

You Are: for teenage girls

Our aim is to equip and empower the girls to be the best version of themselves. The conferences include workshops on 'how we see ourselves," building self worth, tips and strategies for hair, skin care, make-up and creating your own style. They will hear stories and experiences from speakers whose aim is to inspire, motivate and encouragement the girls to knowing their worth and living it out in purpose and on purpose.

Girls will have a group mentor who consist of students in year 12,13 or studying at university. The mentors (who are positive role models and volunteering their time) will encourage and work with the girls over the three days. The mentors are trained and supported in their role throughout the three days.

We would ask that Mums, Grandmas, Aunties and other important women be available for a 30 min debrief on the last day of the workshop followed by catwalk of each of the girls showing their unique beauty & personality.
