Posting Date: 06/19/2011
On June 16, nearly 70 Wood County students who are members of Teen Institute were awarded for their hard work throughout the year with a trip to Cedar Point.
Teen Institute emphasizes peer leadership and positive life skills development. All members must commit to being drug free. There is a Teen Institute group in each Wood County high school and Penta Career Center.
This year, Teen Institute members served as role models in their schools in a variety of ways, including attending retreats, facilitating leadership activities and community service.
Teen Institute is
based on the risk and protective factors strategy, which illustrates the importance of older teens being leaders and positive role models to younger students.
Teen Institute is a program offered through the Wood County Educational Service Center. Funding is provided by the Wood County ADAMHS (Alcohol Drug Addiction Mental Health Services) Board and ODADAS (Ohio Department Alcohol Drug Addiction Services).
North Baltimore High School students who participated were: Ashlee Quantic, Cody Switzer, Jane Powell, Brittany Daughenbaugh, Andrew Senecal, Ashley Miller, Rebecka Adkins, Logan Carles, Jeffery Hoffman, Tessa Reinman and Ashley Baisden.
