Formation Conference 2018

The Montgomery County (MD) Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is proud to present the 2nd Annual all-girl youth empowerment conference, Formation: Exploring the Unknown. On Saturday, April 7, 2018, join over 150 girls in Montgomery County, Maryland for an action-packed, interactive youth empowerment conference at Montgomery College- Germantown Campus!

With a dynamic and diverse panel of speakers and life-skill activities, this conference will leave everyone feeling inspired and motivated to remove all negativity and conquer their dreams and aspirations. 


Middle school and high school girls from Montgomery County (MD) and the surrounding area are invited to explore non-traditional careers paths especially those that are historically underrepresented by women.

Parents and Guardians

What sets Formation apart from other youth conferences is our unique Adult Track for parents, guardians, and mentors. While the girls are learning about non-traditional career paths, adults are learning about the importance of taking time for yourself as well as family time and effective communication.


April 7, 2018 | Montgomery College-Germantown Campus
