Mayor Thomas M. Menino and wife Angela Menino to Attend Summit for Teen Girls
BOSTON (August 12, 2009) — Recognizing the importance of empowering Boston's teen girls, Simmons College and the Boston Centers for Youth & Families will host a Citywide Girls' Summit, titled "Find Your Peace," Sat., August 15, at Simmons College.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Honorary Chairwoman Angela Menino are among the special guests attending the third annual summit, a free gathering that takes place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Simmons campus at 300 The Fenway in Boston.
The girls, ages 11-18, will participate in interactive workshops, panel discussions, and a resource fair on issues ranging from cyber safety and healthy relationships, to "life after high school." The summit also will connect the girls to a variety of resources across the city, and help facilitate discussions between the participants and successful local women who are considered to be positive role models.
The summit is sponsored by Boston Centers for Youth & Families in conjunction with the Simmons College Institute for Leadership and Change. The BCYF is the city's largest provider of comprehensive programs and services, offering urban neighborhood residents a variety of resources, ranging from childcare and summer programs, to senior services and alternative adult education and recreational programs.
Simmons College is a nationally recognized university located in the heart of Boston. It includes an undergraduate college for women, and graduate programs for women and men in management, social work, health sciences, and library and information science.
