What: 2nd Annual Teen Summit.

The Summit is an opportunity for teens and their families (parents/guardians) to be exposed to current issues facing today’s teens. Teens will engage in interactive, open dialogue workshops facilitated by their peers on topics of interest such as underage drinking and prescription drug abuse, social networking sites, and the do not snitch code of silence phenomenon. The Summit will provide teens a voice to articulate these issues in their community and with their peers. Teens will learn information that will encourage positive and critical thinking skills and promote self-respect and self-esteem.
