The 20th Annual Teen Conference is over ūüôĀ !! We hope you were excited about the workshops and other conference activities. This year‚Äôs conference theme is "MYLIFE#IOwnIt!" This conference pushed you to think about what you want for yourself and gave you some tools to build the future you desire. We all have dreams for ourselves and sometimes circumstances in our lives make it seem impossible for us to achieve those dreams. This year's conference made efforts to get you to find the strength and develop a plan to achieve and to OWN your dream.  


  On¬†June 26th - June 27th¬†the Teen Conference was held at the¬†University of Maryland Eastern Shore. The Teen Conference hosted youth from all over the state of Maryland ages 14 to 17. Youth Participants got excited and hype by the phenomenal hosts Dijohn T., Antonio M., and Tyler L. ¬†Youth were engaged throughout the conference with breakout session, activities, motivational speech by Mr. Michael Sanders, food and music/dance. ¬†Take a look at the 2014 Teen Conference Program to find out more about what happened at the Teen Conference.
