15th annual Harmony Among Lynn Teens Conference

Hosted by Part of the Solution Youth Council at Girls Inc. of Lynn

Saturday, April 6th

4:30pm -10:30pm

Lynn Vocational Technical Institute

80 Neptune Blvd

Lynn, MA

The goal of the event is to bring youth together to discuss teen issues and show that having a good time doesn’t include drugs and alcohol. The theme of this year’s conference is being “Above the Influence”, not just including substance abuse, but also peer pressure, violence, bullying, and other negative influences. Around 200-300 teens come together to learn about resources in their communities and attend workshops followed by guest speakers, raffle prizes, and more!

HALT Conference this Saturday!

The 12th Annual (HALT) Harmony Among Lynn Teens Conference is this Saturday April 10th, 2010 from 4:30-11:00 p.m. at Lynn Tech.  The youth/adult planning committee has been very busy putting together what we think will be another great HALT Conference!  This annual conference gives teens resources to live healthy lives while demonstrating the positive contributions youth are making in the city.  Last year over 350 Lynn teens came out for this event to find out how they could make a difference.  This year's conference will have an anti-violence focus (specific theme to be decided this week).  The evening will include:
    •    Agency Resource Tables
    •    Summer Job Information
    •    Best Pizza in Lynn?  Teens eat & vote! (Over 15 Lynn Restaurants donate their pizzas for this)
    •    Youth Led Workshops
    •    Inspirational Speakers  
    •    followed by a Dance & free give aways!!!!
