250 girls attending empowerment conference

A local nonprofit wants girls to do know they can do anything. That's the name of their conference that kicks off Saturday at Delaware Tech's Wilmington campus.

Chandra Pitts is the Executive Director of One Village Alliance and the founder of "Girls Can Do Anything."

"This is really the launch of a year-round initiative to really redefine womanhood and what it means to be a girl. So it's all about empowering and raising healthy, strong and successful girls and connecting them with female role models of all ages.



The conference is sold-out with more than 250 girls ages 9-17 attending.
