Parent Workshop Each year, our conference offers an opportunity for parents and educators to get practical advice on a variety of topics as they guide their daughters (and students) on the journey from middle school to high school to college & career. These are critical and exciting times so we highly encourage your participation in the parent workshop! The Parent Workshop sessions run from 10:00am to 1:30pm. The registration fee is $15; scholarships are available upon request. You may register for this workshop using the same registration process you use to register your middle schooler. This is a single workshop broken into three sessions that parallels the events presented for the girls. It is always very popular so please be aware that space is limited. Sign up early to reserve your seat. No on-site registrations will occur. Parent participants are invited to attend the Main Stage Conclusion after their workshops have concluded.
