This is a four-day, three night leadership and prevention program that will take place from November 16th-19th. The conference will be hosted at Camp Long Point in Penn Yan, New York. The mission of the Teen Institute is to empower teens with the knowledge, skills and confidence to lead an alcohol, tobacco and other drug free life; develop and strengthen leadership skills; educate and lead peers to reduce the frequency of substance abuse and other unhealthy behaviors; advocate for positive change within their schools and communities; and promote healthy decision making. The six students selected to attend this conference are Raegan Bracchy, Tyler Bruce, Jessica Davis, Ava Green, Jasper Koota and Miles Philion. These students were specifically chosen for their leadership qualities as well as their ability to positively influence others. We intend to have the students put the skills and knowledge gained at the conference into an action plan for improving the health of the students at Delaware Academy and the Delhi Community. The students will be attending the conference with our middle and high school health teacher, Allison Yando, as well as the Assistant Director of the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council of Delaware County, Justin Hamm.
