DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

More than 100 pre-teen and teenage girls will be attending a leadership conference at Clarke University from June 26-28.

The "Raise Your Voice" event will host Girl Scouts from Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois, who will get a weekend of fun and inspiration while learning to be leaders.

Angela Ventris, director of leadership experiences says "Raise Your Voice provides girls with an opportunity to learn leadership skills and boost their confidence in an entertaining and engaging environment. The girls are able to work collectively to build on the Girl Scout mission of courage, confidence, and character all in the matter of one, fun weekend."

The 2015 speaker is Rep. Abby Finkenauer; she's the 3rd youngest female lawmaker in the United States. Her speech will aim to inspire girls to have a voice.
