PROJECT CONNECT EVENTS

We are empowering our teens to help us plan, recruit, and host social events for their peers. Teens who would like to help plan events
are invited to join us at our pizza and planning meetings. At these meetings teens will work with one another to plan one upcoming event in the month following. We will help with everything you need to have a successful event including registration and supervision. Teens and parents will receive information about these upcoming events one month before each event.

Pizza & Planning Meetings (12:15-1:15pm): August 25, October 20, December 15, February 9, March 29
