FARRELL, Pennsylvania (WKBN) – Teens and children in Farrell got together Saturday to learn life tools and inspire growth. The “I Grow” conference at Valley Baptist Church was for kids as young as 10 years old.

The group had conversations about positive self-image, encouraging others, and working towards their full potential.

“I hope that they’re motivated and they take all the different seeds that we’re planting,” says Sharmayne Bolling with the group Pretty Girls Inc. “We have six classes. We want them to be motivated to become better. That’s the whole title of the conference, ‘I Grow’. So we just want them to grow.”

The youth split up into different sessions throughout the day and learned from mentors. This is the second year for the event.
