During the weekend of July 18th, over 45 youth leaders, working on teen pregnancy prevention efforts in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania gathered for a retreat where they could learn best practices, enhance their leadership skills and work closely with other youth leaders throughout the country!
The weekend was a success! Teens learned what it meant to become a better leader. They brainstormed ideas on how to make their programs sustainable in their respective cities and most importantly they grew as individuals.
