The Eta Gamma Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho sorority, in a partnership with the S.C. Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and Mt. Carmel UMC, will be hosting the sorority’s annual youth symposium from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday at Mt. Carmel.
The theme is “Creating Connections: The Building Blocks of Leadership.”
The goal of this year’s symposium is to support and engage young people, adults, organizations and communities to experience the direct benefits of developed skills to solve community problems and enhance their civic participation.
Topics for student for discussion are teen pregnancy prevention, distracted driving, financial simulations for students, HIV/AIDS awareness, exercise for life, eating for life, my future career and voter registration.
Parent discussions include eating for life; sex: it can wait and the importance of education.
Bullying will also be a topic of discussion for both audiences.
A free lunch will be served and door prizes will be awarded to the parents and youth, including two $50 Walmart gift cards. The community of Bamberg and the surrounding areas are invited to attend.
