Teen2Teen Mentoring: The Council members work side-by-side with younger children and teenagers, educating them about disease prevention. This year, the Council's focus is on prevention of heart disease. The Council members taught students about the risk factors for heart disease and made paper mache models of the human heart with them, and ran hands-on cooking classes and fitness classes in order to empower teens with the critical life skills needed to prevent heart disease. They also engaged them in online quizzes that the Teen Council members drafted, which culminated in a Jeopardy contest among the students and their parents.
