The Family Service Bureau of Newark will host its sixth annual Celebration of Womanhood Conference: Fabulous Me, on June 10.
More than 250 young women from across New Jersey will attend the conference organized by FSB, an affiliate of New Community, where teens learn about leadership skills, healthy relationship building and cyberbullying, and also have an opportunity to network and attend a resource fair.
Victoria Mahand, a licensed social worker and national training specialist at One Circle Foundation, will headline the daylong conference as the keynote speaker. A graduate of Rutgers University, Mahand has spent years working with youth who have severe mental, behavioral or economic difficulties by collaborating with the public schools and court systems. She is also a member of the National Association of Social Workers.
The Celebration of Womanhood Conference is made possible by funds from the New Jersey Governor’s Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Committee, which is administered by the New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission.
The conference, which is open to young women ages 12 to 17, is from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Seton Hall University in South Orange and will include a continental breakfast and lunch. Registration is required. For more information, email Kathy Taylor, training coordinator at FSB, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
