This past week eight Ardsley High School students attended the Eastern States Conference for Youth to Youth International, along with Theresa DelGrosso, Monique Johnson and Tony Vacca. Youth to Youth engages young people through meaningful activities to develop and implement their own ideas to create positive change.
The students, whose attendance was sponsored by the Ardsley SAYF Coalition, attended workshops and breakout sessions, heard from speakers about substance abuse prevention, and participated in fun and social activities built into the 4-day conference schedule. All of the students were enthusiastic and are looking forward to putting the initiatives they learned at the conference into action in our community.
We are so proud of our eight participants, and we look forward to working with them to create positive change within our community.
