Simmons College hosted nearly 125 attendees for the 2014 Girl 2 Girl – Girl Scout Leadership Conference on Sunday, January 26.
Girls from grades 6-12 participated in several workshops, including self-defense, robotics, educational sessions on food, and a session on how to choose a college led by Assistant Director of Admissions Lauren Kovarik.
First-year nursing student Christina Rullo gave the welcoming address on behalf of Simmons and spoke about her love for Girl Scouts and the College.
The conference also incorporated new ways to engage attendees on social media. Girls were encouraged to tweet photos using hashtags #G2G2014 and #GirlScout4Life at @SimmonsCollege for an opportunity to win Simmons prizes.
The event was hosted in collaboration with the Simmons Institute for Leadership and Change (SILC), a bridge between Simmons and community organizations with a focus on women and girls.PHOTO: Girl Scouts in attendance at Sunday's conference
