Empower Hour: Inspiring Body Confidence Through Bracelets and Words

Hosted by


Join us for a creative and confidence-building evening out for parents and tweens. We'll hear from Dr. Lisa Klein, pediatrician at Child Health Associates and founder of Turning Teen. Dr. Klein will address the challenges many tweens face when it comes feeling confident about their bodies because of competing messages in society and in the media, and she'll help us open the door for discussions about body image. We'll also be stringing up some inspiring bracelets with Robyn Heicklen of Bracha's Beads, assisted by her son Daniel (check her out on Instagram @brachas.beads). You'll leave with wearable reminders of how awesome you are, and with some new tools and techniques for talking through topics about body image and body confidence.

In addition, we will learn about Dignity Grows, a cause TOV is committed to supporting this year. Dignity Grows works to combat "period poverty" by providing girls and women with the hygiene products needed to participate in work, school and everyday life during menstruation. You'll have the opportunity to learn more about this organization and ways to help further their mission with TOV.

Please register in advance by January 18.

Space is limited.

This event is intended for parents and their tweens (ages 10 - 13).

$36 per person, $20 of which is a donation towards two full totes for Dignity Grows.
