On International Women’s Day 2023, Youth Frontiers will bring together students from around the Twin Cities for a Character Academy Conference on confidence. During this interactive program, participants will get to connect with their peers, learn from the wisdom of adult women mentors, and realize the importance of using their voices to make the world better. Through an exploration of resilience, they will gain practical strategies to combat nerves and summon a sense of power. They will leave the conference ready to practice more confidence and ultimately make a positive difference in their schools and broader communities.
Participants engage in community-building activities designed to break down social barriers and help them forge new connections with students from different schools.
Through storytelling, live music and interactive content, our staff explains the key features of confidence and shares practical tools for building resilience through confidence-based behavior.
Students meet in small groups to learn from each other and volunteer women leaders. Through guided conversation, they deepen their understanding of confidence and identify opportunities to practice this character skill.
Students will leave the conference having identified one way they will cultivate more confidence in their life moving forward.
At the end of the conference, students have a chance to share their confidence commitments with the large group for affirmation and accountability.
