teen Empowerment Conference

Held the last Saturday in September of each year. This major event started in 2007 and was the primary base for the origins of this organization. It serves girls ages 12 to 19. It exposes girls to educational workshops, activities, entertainment, food, vendors, gift bags and a host of other things. We connect with our community and partner with different organizations and businesses. We connect girls to needed resources. It is a day of empowerment for sure!

"75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative behaviors."


I.M.A.G.E. for TEENS celebrated its 16 years of service at the Jackie Dole Sherrill Community Center in Hattiesburg, MS. The center is linked to a trendsetter who believed that she could and she did. We are thankful for the life of Jackie Dole Sherrill and for the current staff of this facility and the city of Hattiesburg for allowing us to utilize the facility in our efforts to continue our mission of empowering girls and inspiring them to be trendsetters as well.

What to Expect?


Exposure to new ideas is one concept we strive to communicate. We bring in experienced and talented instructors to educate our participants on the importance of developing skills to increase confidence and a positive self image. 


Throughout the year, business women, mothers, and other female community members volunteer to join us in our quest to nurture, support, and challenge the girls to become role models. We realize it takes a village to raise a child.


The girls who participate are exposed to good people, resources, information, entertainment, food and more! It's truly a full day of allowing the girls to dream of their future. When you know who you want to be, you tend to go in that direction.


Cultivating a healthy, safe environment is at the core of our strategy. We invest time and leverage  resources to promote intelligence, meekness, ambition, gracefulness, and eminence throughout the conference.

More to come!
