This one-day, faith-based and mentoring-education conference will draw 150 youth leaders interested in mentoring at-risk youth and older youth exiting the foster care system. Participants learn from professionals how mentors can navigate support systems to help youth and provide them positive alternatives and productive choices.
Six workshops will provide participants with the essential ingredients of effective mentoring programs: Mentoring, No Short Cuts, Nuclear And Extended Family’s Participation In Effective Mentoring, Consequences For Your Actions, Building Healthy Families, Crisis Management When Mentoring Difficult Male Youth And Crisis Management When Mentoring Difficult Female Youth.
The conference will also featured performances by Philadelphia Teen Challenge Choir whose mission is to provide youth, adults and families an effective, comprehensive solution to overcome the vicious cycle of drug and alcohol abuse in order to restore torn families, prevent family violence and abuse and aid in producing productive members of society. This inspirational choir sings songs of thanksgiving and/or shares their testimonies. When we they sing, everyone is reminded of our belief that every human being has value and life-controlling behavior can be changed.
