Girl Power! Adolescent Empowerment

Our 7th presentation at our annual forum, “Contemporary Women’s Issues,” on 13 April:

Girl Power! Adolescent Empowerment

Girls’ loss of self-confidence at the onset of adolescence is well-documented, and girls of this age are especially vulnerable and in need of empowerment. This presentation will outline the challenges facing female adolescents, and will describe the GIRL POWER HONG KONG! empowerment project for female students in 3rd-grade middle school. The project is specifically meant to assist students in assessing their strengths and designing their ongoing plan for the development of their future career path, well in advance of university or vocational school. Presenters from a variety of cultural as well as professional backgrounds serve as role models as they give a talk on their work and take students through activities of empowerment.
