Marin Teen Girl Conference

Be Your Own Superhero!

History of the Marin Teen Girl Conference

A special THANK YOU to the amazing group of teen ambassadors who inspired and planned the conference speeches and workshops!

The Marin Women’s Commission established the conference in 2011 after a 2008 Marin County study targeted the need for teenage girls to come together to share their experiences and explore their challenges.

Our conference mission is to give every teen girl in Marin County the knowledge, support, and opportunity she needs to live her dreams.
