TFP Hosts 2 Day Conference for Pal-Mac and Newark Seniors
Seniors taking advanced English sometimes cannot fit the TFP program into their busy schedules during the year. This year, TFP decided to offer a 2 day conference at the Newark Boces Conference Center so that these students could take advantage of the program. Breakfast and lunch were included. 80+ students participated in the conference, coming from Palmyra-Macedon High School and Newark High School.
Students reported that they enjoyed learning about healthy relationships in this setting. They also had a great time meeting kids from other schools in their classes!
Here is some feedback students left about the program:
- “I enjoyed the interactive activities.”
- “It was more interactive and informational than I expected. I felt welcome and had fun.”
- “My group was awesome! I had a ton of fun.”
- “I learned a lot about myself.”
- “I liked the teachers.”
- “I enjoyed that the teachers were so open and laid back.”
- “I thought it was such a great experience and I have nothing but positive things to say about it. All of the activities were so relevant for teens.”
- “I’m glad I met so many cool people. One thing you can improve is make it longer, cause I enjoyed it a lot, and it’s better than school.”
The TFP team is glad students had a great experience. We look forward to offering this conference again in the future!
