Middle School is a time when many students are trying to figure out who they are, where they fit in, and what they want their future to be like.  This is also a time when many students will be faced with pressures to do things like drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes for the first time.  During a time when “fitting in” is the most important thing for our children, it can be difficult to resist peer pressure to do things they may already know are wrong.  More importantly, this is a crucial time for young people to begin thinking about how their decisions today can impact their future tomorrow.  As a parent, these are things you are likely already talking to your child about.  However, sometimes these life lessons are better received when they come from someone else.

Youth conference participants will engage in fun, interactive games and activities led by local high school students and the National Award Winning Training Agency, Leading to Change.  Participants will have the opportunity to network with other students their own age while building knowledge and skills needed to help them make healthy decisions and build a bright future….with the help of music, games, friends, food and fun!
