Young Women’s Program
In partnership with our sponsors, the Texas Conference for Women is proud to feature the Young Women’s Program, which provides high school junior and senior girls with the opportunity to attend the Conference and participate in a seminar track designed especially for them. The participation of over 320 high school students in the 2014 Conference was made possible thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.
This unique program enables our next generation of leaders the opportunity to hear from dynamic speakers, exchange ideas and begin to chart their own paths. In the Conference’s 15-year history, more than 8,000 young women have attended the Texas Conference for Women as a result of these scholarships. Please take a moment to acknowledge the young women in attendance as you travel the halls of the convention center this October. You may be sharing your experience with future teachers, doctors, authors, CEOs or even a president!
For YWP breakout session information, please see the Agenda.
