Several ITC students were joined by students from Fowler and Nottingham in attending the Teen Institute Annual Leadership Conference held at the Salvation Army Long Point Camp on Seneca Lake.  ITC’s own peer leaders Zau N-Hkum and Mikem Simpson, along with the tireless efforts of Ms. Squillace, planned and organized this opportunity for all the students to take part in the four-day leadership conference.  In addition to Zau and Mikem, ITC was represented by Avante Owen, Vanessa Marmol, Sam Cosentino, Bridget Kent, Kyra Spaights, Roc’elle Ray, Shadasia Stanley, Zenaya Pinkston, Samiya Muse, Hanan Muse, and Larenzo Murphy.
 
The Teen Institute strives 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.
