Ninth annual Young Women's Conference in SF
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Hundreds of teenage girls are getting a pep talk Friday on how to be young women at the Ninth annual Young Women's Conference.
The day-long conference is organized by state Senator Mark Leno. The girls mainly come from schools in impoverished San Francisco neighborhoods. Leno says many of the participants have seen some type of violence first hand.
The conference works on building their self-esteem, but also teaches them yoga and how to write a resume. It's been such a success that Leno now also organizes a boys-only conference.
