Elk Grove Youth Advisory Council goes to CGTI Mid Year Conference!

Updated: Apr 10, 2020

The Elk Grove Youth Advisory Council (EG YAC), along with adult allies Ray Galarza, Leslie Alvarez, and Sean Caselton attended CGTI Mid Year Conference in Normal, IL.

CGTI Mid Year is a youth leadership conference that offers opportunities for teens around the state to learn about leadership, healthy choices, and how to work with others to create better communities. CGTI empowers youth with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to lead an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug-free life by strengthening leadership skills and educating them to advocate for positive change within their school, community, and local government. The EG YAC is excited to take this back to their school and lead their Operation Snowball on February 29th.
