Actress Raven Symone will be the keynote speaker of the Delaware Teen Summit on August 8.
The event will feature two days of activities that focus on the issues of teens. Events include a celebrity softball game on Saturday and the Delaware Teen Idol Finals. Raven will be at the morning session of the summit, which starts at 10 a.m. and is free to teens (13 to 18) and parents who pre-register.
“Helping teens make positive choices is incredibly rewarding, and I’m thrilled that I can participate,” Raven said.
The Summit is an opportunity for teens and their families (parents/guardians) to be exposed to current issues facing today’s teens. Teens will engage in interactive, open dialogue workshops facilitated by their peers on topics of interest such as underage drinking and prescription drug abuse, social networking sites, and the do not snitch code of silence phenomenon. The Summit will provide teens a voice to articulate these issues in their community and with their peers. Teens will learn information that will encourage positive and critical thinking skills and promote self-respect and self-esteem.
The event will take place at the Doubletree Hotel in Wilmington. To find out more or to register, click here.
