IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- The coalition Irving About Safe Kids sponsored six Irvington High School students to attend a Youth-to-Youth training conference in Rhode Island this past summer.
The students were asked to attend because of their leadership skills. The students were sophomores Anna Grace Nimmo, Cristian Ishoo and Angela DeFrancesco, junior Madison Hernandez and seniors Madison Carelli and Barbara Robertson.
At the conference, professionals, peers and youth action groups had workshops and led discussions about how to help peers who are having difficulties with drugs, poor behavior or other challenges.
