Ft. Lauderdale, FL – The Partners For Youth (PFY) Foundation will host its first annual Confab on Saturday, February 22nd from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, at the Bamford Park Auditorium in Davie.

The Confab is designed to appeal to teenagers who will come together in an unprecedented and stimulating forum that will feature presentations on Finances, Health & Wellness, College education options, Culture and the Law. There will also be open discussions with the teens themselves about matters of concern from their perspectives.

“We believe it is crucial to hear from our youngsters in a forum of togetherness, mutual respect and constructive understanding”, said Steve Higgins, board member of the PFY. Parents and guardians are invited to take their youngsters to participate in this exciting forum of exchange. The event is free and children ages 12 to 17 are encouraged to attend.

Teens can register online at partnersforyouthfoundation.com or email info@partnersforyouthfoundation.com for more details.  Schools and Church youth groups are also encouraged to participate and register by February 18th.

The goal of the Confab is to provide information and direction to the youngsters and provide real-life examples to guide them down the right path. “Sometimes our youth simply do not necessarily know where to turn and we need to offer some direction”, says Dr. Rose Adams-Lewis, PFY Director and one of the presenters.

The Partners for Youth Foundation has embarked upon programs benefitting organizations such as the SOS Children’s Village in South Florida and The STEP Centre in Jamaica and has been granting scholarships to students in need for the past 14 years.
