Through Her Eyes 2017
October 27 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm$40 - $150
Each year, the Through Her Eyes conference provides a signature event for the Center for Human Development to host our community in support of the emotional, social and physical needs of troubled, at risk, and vulnerable girls and young women. Together with other caring organizations, we have been able to affect positive change by inspiring thousands of people who engage directly with girls and young women, including educators, social workers, direct care staff, family members, and concerned citizens. The conference attracts nearly 500 professionals each year from throughout Western Massachusetts.
This year, as we continue to address issues that hinder this vulnerable population from becoming strong, successful women, we hope we can count on you to join us a sponsor of the conference.
The conference focuses on current methods and practices for dealing with girls who face challenges at home, in school, and in society, from trauma and neglect to aggression and addiction. It features a keynote speaker, a lunchtime speaker, and eight to ten workshops run by notable professionals.
Call for presenters! What do you think people in our community need as they work with girls to make positive changes and assist them in overcoming the challenges that today’s girls face? If you’re ready to submit your proposal or just interested in learning more about what types of workshops we’re looking for, please click here. Submissions = Commitment! Please submit your workshop proposal by June 30, 2017! Thank you.
“This conference is a place where people can share techniques and methods that are having a positive effect on the lives of young, at-risk girls – techniques were used to help me when I needed it.
I’ve been nurtured and inspired by people just like you and today I’m following my passion of using horses as a therapeutic tool to help others. Thank you for believing in me.”
