EAST ORANGE, NJ - The Men of Lambda Upsilon Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and their Omega Teens Mentoring group recently participated in “Father and Son” conference hosted by the Eta Pi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
The purpose of the “Father and Son” conference was to provide a series of hands on exercises so fathers and sons can practice to increase quality time. The Men of Lambda Upsilon accompanied its Omega Teens Mentoring group to the conference in East Orange.. The Omega Teens participated in Fitness, African History, Meditation, Video Games, Scouting and Coaching sessions.
Paterson Public Schools Principal Vernon Maynor of the Young Men’s Leadership Academy is the host for the Omega Teens program. Principal Maynor feels the impact of the field trip is exposure for the Omega Teens. The experience of traveling outside of Paterson to a conference is a learning opportunity for the mentoring group while the conference is an opportunity to meet children from different areas. Principal Maynor also feels that the experience can help students broaden their horizons and goals by stepping out of their comfort zone.
The Omega Teens had a great time at the event and are looking forward to the next Omega Teen field trip.
