The conference will address dozens of girl’s issues in interactive group workshops for more than 500 Texas girls ages 11-18 and the adults who care about them.

The 3rd annual Leaders on the Move – Girls’ Day is about promoting healthy lifestyles that enrich the lives of girls as they foster friendships, discover values, increase physical activity, build self-esteem and connect on issues that impact girls.
