Somerville Youth Conference, This SATURDAY

This Saturday, May 9th, 2015, the City of Somerville, The Somerville Police Department, Somerville Public Schools, and the Center for Teen Empowerment, Inc. will present Somerville’s Ninth Annual Youth Peace Conference at Somerville High School. The Conference will feature a highly sophisticated Teen lead show followed by community workshops focused on mental health from 12:30­-5:00pm.

The organizers are expecting about four hundred Somerville teens to participate in this moving and inspiring event, which will feature a sophisticated stage presentation that addresses the root causes of youth violence, mental health and other issues using the arts—including skits, music, spoken word, rap, and speeches. Through these performances, the conference will address some of the major issues facing Somerville residents and explore how youth, adults, police, politicians, and community organizations can work together for a more peaceful community.
