Empowered Girls, Empower Girls – A Summit Like No Other

Girls Spark

MEDIA, PA — In a revolutionary move towards embracing and celebrating female strength, confidence, and resilience, Girls Spark, a cherished local non-profit organization, presses forward with its acclaimed Annual Girls Spark Summit. Due to its fourth year on June 1, 2024, and set to unroll at Penn State Brandywine, this year’s Summit promises to be even more empowering and educational for our young teen girls.

At the heart of Girls Spark Summit sits the audacious vision to inspire and capacitate middle and high school girls. The objective is rather simple; equip these young women with the required knowledge, skills, and confidence to adeptly tackle the myriad of challenges that life throws at them. In a generous first for Girls Spark, Penn State Brandywine is even offering merit-based college scholarships exclusively for Summit attendees.

The event is entirely complimentary, including the provision of free busing from Delaware County, Montgomery County, and Chester County. The Summit welcomes all teen girls and those who identify as girls, aged 11-19, from across the Delaware Valley region. Attendees will not only relish a delightful free lunch but also avail the chance to explore a diverse range of teen vendors, creating a unique shopping experience. True to the Summit’s energetic spirit, each attendee will leave with a Girls Spark T-shirt and a swag bag overflowing with gratifying surprises and delights generously donated by our dedicated sponsors.

Girls Spark has been on a rapid trajectory of growth since its last Summit. This growth has manifested in the successful establishment of student clubs in local schools and a considerable rise in virtual workshop attendance. As the organization embarks on its fourth year of organizing the Summit, Executive Director Kim Yacoubian anticipates the most significant turnout yet.

The Summit boasts an extensive array of workshops, meticulously designed to cater to the unique needs and concerns of middle and high school girls. Each workshop is rigorously vetted by our teen leadership board and led by accomplished female leaders. The topics tackled range from fostering healthy relationships, sharpening leadership capabilities, to emphasizing the importance of mental wellness.

This year’s Summit will have renowned keynote speakers Jennifer Croneberger, Chief Inspiration Officer & Founder at JLynne Consulting Group, and wellness entrepreneur and influencer Erika Rothenberger. They will be presenting “The LIGHT Principle” and “The Audacity to Be Resilient” to middle and high school attendees, respectively.

The Summit extends beyond workshops, offering ample opportunities to engage in enriching activities such as art therapy, yoga, and self-defense classes. These are not mere leisure activities, but they are designed to foster a supportive environment, promote networking, and facilitate mentorship among peers and female role models.

True to its societal commitment, Girls Spark will also be organizing a collection drive of menstrual products during the Summit. The drive is an effort to combat period poverty, with all donations going to The Spot Period of No More Secrets Mind Body Spirit, based in Philadelphia.

The Summit’s success and grandeur are attributable to the unyielding support, both financial and moral, of our gracious sponsors, including the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) King of Prussia Campus, Solenis, Monarch Staffing, Sun East Federal Credit Union, Baird, IMC Construction, The O’Connor Group, Meridian Bank, and Workplace Harmony.
