Girls World Expo Leadership Workshop to be held locally in July

A unique leadership workshop for girls 11-13 will debut this summer in Carlsbad. The one-week event (three hours daily) is built around giving young teen girls the knowledge, confidence, and skills they need to succeed and create success for others.

Attendees will take part in a wide range of workshops and demonstrations. Distinguished women from the local community will speak, answer questions, and serve as role models on how to lead and succeed personally and professionally. The Girls World Expo Leadership Workshop is an outgrowth of the highly successful one-day Girls World Expo events that have been staged nationwide, featuring workshops and seminars on cyber bullying, dating abuse awareness, self-defense, nutritional and eating disorder issues, self-esteem creation and maintenance, and other issues that are part of the everyday lives of young girls.

The event will be held July 9-13 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. daily at the La Costa Valley Clubhouse on Calle Barcelona in Carlsbad
