Youth to Youth Conference

 

Registration Link: https://tinyurl.com/Y2Y2018
 What:  24th Annual Youth to Youth Middle School Conference
 When:  March 24, 2018
 Where:  Castro Valley High School, 19400 Santa Maria Ave., Castro Valley
 Time:  7:45 P– 10:00 P.M.
 Cost:  $45 before February 24; $55 after February 24


The Youth to Youth model creates opportunities for teens to support each other in decisions to be drug-free.  One of the strongest predictors of adolescent drug use is association with drug-using peers.  The youth staff simply says that Youth to Youth is about kids helping other kids stay drug-free.  The conference is an entire day where youth get together, have fun and talk about some really important issues.

More than 100 high school students will work at the conference, guiding their middle school peers through skits, games, panel discussions and small-group activities.  More than 20 workshops will be offered throughout the day.  Some of the topics to be covered include building self-esteem, stress reduction, drug and alcohol abuse, positive body image, dating and relationship troubles, self-defense, jazz dancing, art, and communication skills.  True stories of teens and substance abuse will be a key element of the conference.  There will also be small group discussions, a motivational speaker and a dance at the end of the conference.

The learning and fun 
continues from morning till night during a Y2Y conference.   The day is very interactive, high energy and youth are kept moving from activity to activity.
If your students’ like hanging out with their friends, meeting new friends, having fun, dancing, and good food – then this is the conference for them.   More than just an “event”, the Youth to Youth Middle School Conference is a way to see the best in teens and their leadership skills.

 

Youth to Youth’s principles are simple:
Youth 2 Youth program is youth driven, every teen is given the opportunity to take on leadership roles and each young person is guided in developing assets within themselves.

 

Do not miss out on this potentially life-changing, saving, and enhancing experience! 

 

Los Cerros PTA Sister School Card Game & Dice Drive

 

Los Cerros PTA is excited to announce our new sister school, Sun Terrace Elementary School. Located in Concord, 71.3% of the student body (372 students) qualify for free and reduced lunch and they could use support from our community.  We hope to partner with their staff members throughout the year with special activities to promote academic success for these children.  Our first event is a math game drive.  The staff at Sun Terrace is asking us to help them collect enough playing card sets or dice game sets for each child to take home.  The goal is to teach the students fun math games they can play with a deck of cards or a set of dice and then give each student a learning tool to strengthen their math skills at home.  A collection box is located in the Los Cerros Library.  If you would like to get involved with our sister school program, please contact Cecilia Brear, brearfamily@mac.com.
