More than 70 young adults attended the Advance LA’s 2016 Day for Young Adults, a one-of-a-kind event designed specifically for teens and young adults. The event on July 16, featured interactive workshops that provided attendees with the opportunity to practice new skills, interact with peers and make new friendships.

This year’s event included sessions on topics ranging from managing stress, getting organized and acing the next job interview to dating, fashion, technology and social media. The day also included a chance to learn mindful awareness and time management. During lunch, Paws and Pals volunteers, Victoria Marsh and Clyde her dachshund therapy dog, also came by to meet the attendees. The day ended with a fun ice cream social and dance party.

“We were pleased to have so many engaged young adults at this year’s conference and to see such significant interest in sessions dealing with social skills,” said Holly Daniels, Director of Advance LA. “This was a great opportunity for our young people to interact and get involved with their friends and peers. We were also happy to see so many parents come to the event to take part in our Parent to Parent sessions and discussion.”

Our thanks to everyone who participate ~ it was a wonderful event!
