Young men in grades 9-12 in Middlesex County will have an opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and identify resources to share with their peers at the fifth annual Young Men’s Conference, to be held on Jan. 13 at the DCF Training Center, 30 Van Dyke Ave., New Brunswick.
Under the theme “Man Up: Empowering My Future Starting Today,” the conference will offer interactive workshops on drug and alcohol prevention, wellness and leadership. A highlight will be a performance from the “Should Could Dream Tour,” a fun-filled hour of motivation, entertainment and music.
Each student will be given a backpack containing educational materials and lists of resources.
The free event, which includes breakfast and lunch, is being sponsored by the Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools, the Middlesex County Office of Human Services, New Brunswick Tomorrow and Empower Somerset.
