On Saturday, April 9, thirteen participants from iTEENS program at the Newhall Community Center attended the “Becoming Your Own Superhero” Teen Summit presented by the Southern California Teen Coalition (SCTC). The keynote speaker, Brian Crosby, Creative Director for Marvel Themes Entertainment, empowered teens with an exclusive Marvel animated presentation to become their own superhero by making good choices. The South Gate Police Department, the City of Santa Barbara’s Youth Council, and SCTC board members presented interactive sessions on team building, leadership, cyber-bullying, and ethics. The iTEENS interacted with other Southern California teens, enjoyed a catered lunch, raffle prizes, and received an event t-shirt. iTEENS is an Outreach and Neighborhood Services (ONS) program which provides teens with leadership, volunteer and enrichment activities.
