Congratulations to Nasier McIntyre, a senior at the Institute of Technology at Syracuse Central, on his induction into the 2014 Heart of CNY Teen Institute (TI) as a Youth Leader.

50 teens from all across Central New York applied to TI and only 17 were selected as Youth Leaders.  All of the applicants went through a week long try out ‘camp’ with the 17 being chosen based on their teamwork, commitment and leadership abilities. Teen Institute is a national youth leadership program dedicated to providing young people with the leadership skills to promote healthy living and substance use prevention strategies for themselves and their peers.

Nasier and the other CNY Youth Leaders will design and facilitate a four day institute for 100 CNY teens including six from ITC this fall to teach healthy lifestyle strategies, leadership skills, and drug and alcohol prevention activities.
