"Some of our most supportive sponsors have their own tween daughters so our mission to teach girls to Stand Up, Speak Out, and Be Heard, resonates with them personally," explained Denise Restauri, the founder and creative visionary behind AK Tweens and AllyKatzz.com. "Many will be bringing their daughters to the Tween Summit -- which is very meaningful because my own daughter, Ally, was the main reason why I started AllyKatzz.com!"

Barbara Jones, Editorial Director of Hyperion Books and Voice, is one of these moms; she attended last year's Inaugural Tween Summit as a parent. Her resounding response this year was, "How wonderful! We'd love to be a part of the Tween Summit. Empowering young women as well as full grown ones is part of VOICE's mission. And I know my 11 year-old daughter will want to attend again too. We are psyched!"
