Mikem Simpson (senior leadership team), Solomon Lawrence (leadership team), Kyra Spaights (leadership team), Gerri Hammond, Vernazjae McCullough, Steven Hopkins, Saviere Williams, Dejuan Tigner, Salma Muse, and Ellie Mayberry all recently participated in the 2016 Teen Institute (TI) Conference this past weekend.

During their time at the conference students participated in a number of team building activities as they solved a variety of problems.  The students were joined by their ITC activity advisor, Ms. Cindy, who works for Contact Community Services and is a Student Assistance Counselor at ITC.

The Mission of TI 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.
