Why a Teen Girl Conference?
Research has shown that many of Marin’s teen girls are struggling, in spite of our county’s many resources.
« By age 15, girls are twice as likely to become depressed than boys.
« 59 percent of 5th to 12th grade girls in one survey were dissatisfied with their body shape.
« One in three teen girls in the US is a victim of physical, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner.
KindnessEvolution fully supports Marin Teen Girl Conference and all of the kindness they offer to and inspire in young girls.
