Friday, July 13, 2018; the YMCA, TWEF, and Mrs. Sonja Young hosted a one day youth conference "Giving Voice to Our Youth" at Atlanta Metropolitan College. David Massey led one of the "Wisdom Circles" entitled "The Turn Up is Real!" He discussed sex, alcohol, and drugs with over 100 youth that attended the event. 

The day conference was attended by over 300 young boys and girls and this event was well received by the community. Massey stated, "I learned so much from the youth and it was great to take in their perspective!" Organizers are planning to make this event an annual event for the community and plan to make it bigger and better next year!
