SAYNO's 2nd annual 'YOUth LEADership Conference' set for August | Community Spirit
SAYNO (Substance Abuse Youth Networking Organization) is holding its 2nd Annual Youth Leadership Conference for teens, ages 12-17, Saturday, August 4, 2012 at True Divine Baptist Church in Montgomery, AL. The conference is from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Registration along with $5 is required to attend the conference.
Last year over 140 youth attended the organization’s first conference. The event is designed to maximize the education, information and resources available to equip the next generation to be great leaders. “This year’s theme is YOU LEAD,” says Shereda Finch, executive director. “There are many teens who already possess leadership skills, but it’s our job to make sure these individuals are provided with the right tools and resources, mentors and opportunities to make positive contributions in their communities.”
Chelsea Hughes, a 16 year old rising junior at Robert E. Lee High School, stated that, “attending last year’s conference helped to motivate and inspire me to start the school year. I learned that great things don’t just happen-you have to be self-motivated and determined to make your dreams come true.”
The conference will feature workshops facilitated by professionals representing many organizations including Alabama State University, Family Sunshine Center, and Bridge Builders. The event will also feature entertainment by the Christian hip hop group “Sinners 2 Saints.”
Registration will be accepted up until 9:00 a.m. on the day of the event. For additional information or to access a registration form log on to SAYNO’s at website www.saynomontgomery.org or contact Ms. Finch at (334)265-1821.
