Seven Alton teens attended the Cebrin Goodman Teen Institute funded by the Drug Free Alton Coalition, a five day youth leadership conference. The institute was sponsored by the Illinois Alcoholism and Drug Dependence Association and aimed at teaching leadership, healthy choices, and working with others. Drug Free Alton Coalition Coordinator Linda Koenig tells The Big Z the process doesn't end when the institute is over.
Koenig says they are always accepting newcomers who want to get involved. For more information on how to get involved visit www.drugfreealton.com .
