The most pressing social issues encountered by teenage girls in their schools -- relationships, social networks and families -- will be the topic Saturday at the inaugural Junior Commission on the Status of Women.
The summit of high school girls is sponsored by the Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women.
During the event, peer counselors and licensed professionals will facilitate workshops on stress and mental health; career and college preparation; and teen dating abuse.
The Junior Commission on the Status of Women is comprised of Alameda County high school girls in grades 9-12. Junior commissioners, who are appointed by the Alameda County supervisor to their district, work on in civic projects and educational dialogue that advance issues relevant to all girls.
The summit is free and includes lunch and door prizes. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Youth Uprising, 8711 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland.
