Teen Institute’s Heart of NY conference 2017
This year at Teen Institute’s Heart of NY conference 2017 the TI students did a fantastic job. Tyler Gorman was a returning Senior Youth Staff and Karley Whalen and Jeremy Skeele were Junior Youth Staff. Together with youth from 21 other schools or regions they created and executed one of the biggest events in TI history! We had 7 participants this year who learned about advocacy for a substance-free school and community, public service and leadership. These participants, Megan Gagnier, Danielle McAndrew, Rachel McAndrew, Brooke Moll, Ashley Osborn, Hannah Warner, and Caleb Pitts were able to meet other student leaders from over 25 different high schools in NY. Our FP TI group plans on hosting some events with Elementary students and the Middle-High School students to promote a safe, healthy substance-free environment for us all to thrive and grow as a community.
