The 4th Annual Dream Big! Leadership Conference will provide opportunities for middle and high school girls from economically disadvantaged communities to meet and interact with accomplished women on a college campus while learning about the wide range of educational, career and sports opportunities that are available to them in today’s society. Girls will hear from former high school, collegiate, Olympic and professional female athletes who went on to become presidents, doctors, lawyers, financial advisors and designers to teachers, non-profit leaders, business leaders, scientists and coaches.

Conference Goals:

  • To provide middle and high school female athletes with the opportunity to meet and interact with accomplished women leaders on a college campus while learning about the positive impact sports has had on their lives and how participation in sports has assisted them in their education, careers and life.
  • To enable girls to be better equipped to choose a educational and career path that will enhance their career satisfaction and economic stability, and provide professional mentors to counsel and advise them along their way to success.
