Theta Epsilon Omega Hosts 3rd Annual Male Youth Conference

15 May 2010 6:37 PM | Anonymous

On May 15, 2010, Theta Epsilon Omega Chapter in collaboration with Eta Alpha Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. sponsored a day of “Building and Empowering Young Men.”  Over 40 young men participated in this 3rd Annual Male Youth Conference.  Workshops focused on money management, peer pressure and conflict resolution.  New Haven police officer Richard Benson conducted a candid discussion on how the young men should respond if pulled over by a police officer.  During an insightful seminar on dating, the young men were asked to seriously consider the consequences of unprotected sex, including fatherhood and sexually transmitted infections.  The young men also learned about the importance of saving early, limiting debt and creating a positive credit history.  Participants had the opportunity to collect valuable information and the opportunity to ask questions.  Each attendee received breakfast, lunch and a door prize, which included gift certificates for a free hair cut, Hill Harper’s book “Letters to a Young Brother” and restaurant gift certificates.  The event concluded with a presentation on college and career planning by representatives from Central Connecticut State University, Job Corps and the United States Army.  Conference co-chairs, Sorors Cathy Patton and Stacy Risco, received extremely positive feedback from the conference participants.  Theta Epsilon Omega looks forward to hosting its next Male Youth Conference as it continues the legacy of sisterhood and service by building and empowering young men in the Greater New Haven Community.
