June 22, 2006 — Registration for the Sixth Annual Teen Summit will be held this Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the St. Croix Career and Technical Education Center.
Young people ages13 to 17 are encouraged to sign up for this intensive three-day workshop designed to challenge teenagers to examine the pitfalls of youth and find ways to achieve success while living a healthy lifestyle.
The summit will be held Friday through Sunday, July 28-30, at the University of the Virgin Islands, St. Croix campus. Young people from all three islands in the territory will stay in campus dormitories and attend a series of workshops and breakout sessions.
The event is intended to reinforce positive living, healthy relationships and conflict resolution, while also giving teens an opportunity to express freely their fears, feelings and concerns.
Students will take part in various activities including motivational workshops, interactive games, meetings on nutrition, and health and fitness instruction.
The program will also include a teen dance and outdoor barbeque.
Space is limited and registration is accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Sponsorship is available for students from Safe & Drug-Free schools.
Parental involvement is key to the success of the summit, and organizers are urging parents and other interested persons to volunteer to be a caregiver, mentor, registration assistant or any other volunteer position.
