Women's Conference


For the past nineteen years Proyecto Pastoral has hosted the only community-based Women’s Conference in Boyle Heights.  The conference began with fifty local women and has since grown to 400+ attendees from the immediate neighborhood.  More than just a day of workshops, Proyecto Pastoral’s Women’s Conference links participants to critical health and wellness resources. 

The day-long conference includes health, leadership, and personal development workshops designed to address challenges of poor working families and single mothers.  Workshops are designed to educate women and young girls on preventative health practices.  Participants are provided with the tools needed to advocate for their health and for the health of their families.  The highly anticipated conference is often the only day single moms or hard working women from the local community have to focus on themselves.  It is a day for inspiration, education, mother/daughter bonding, and networking amongst women in the community.


The Conference focuses on providing workshops that are relevant and important to the Women. Some workshops offered at this year's conference included classes on diabetes, mental health, parenting, stress management, menopause, and more! There was also a workshop that women can take with their daughters to help build a stronger mother-daughter bond. Women are also able to choose from a great selection of fitness workshops (Flamenco, Yoga, Zumba, and more).

Every year participants leave the conference with higher self-esteem and more dignity. The Women's Conference is a great way for women of all ages to feel appreciated and celebrate their womanhood!


The Women' Conference offers a variety of interactive and very valuable workshops for young women including self defense, self esteem, sexual health and goal setting workshops. Girls at this year's Women's Conference said that the workshops helped them feel more confident and ambitious. There are also several fitness workshops (Zumba, Yoga, Ballet and more) that are open to the youth participants.

The Women's Conference provides an opportunity for young girls to meet new friends, acquire valuable information and feel empowered!

Quotes from Participants

“I’ve never felt more confident in myself than I do now.  My daughter was with me and I felt so proud to be a mother with dignity…. Thank you Proyecto Pastoral and the people that made this possible.  My life will never be the same because my daughter and I connected in a better way; with dignity and respect!”


"I am going to put to use a lot of what I learned today by making changes beginning with myself"

“Never would I have imagined such a day that gave us so much! I am in shock that such a resource is free! We were treated like queens!”
