A group of 16 students from 10th and 11th grade, as well as members of the AP Human Geography class, attended the Teen Hunger Summit, hosted at Seton Hall Prep on Tuesday, Dec. 5. The students were accompanied by Nicole Nolan of Bridgewater, Director of Service Learning, Dawn Francavilla of Somerset, Director of Student Life, and Dina Congregane of Scotch Plains, School Counselor.
At the conference, students learned about issues relating to hunger and food insecurity, both globally and locally, while attending small breakout workshops focused on a variety of topic related aspects. While in each workshop session, they teamed up with students from schools around New Jersey to develop initial action plans to address their area of concern.
Our W+H students will continue their learning and action plans with Mrs. Nolan and Ms. Francavilla in the coming weeks, and with Mr. Peter Golding of North Plainfield, AP Human Geography instructor.
