The Newburgh Enlarged City School District in collaboration with Mount Saint Mary’s College Desmond Community Engagement and Wellness Center hosted the inaugural My Sister’s Keeper Conference: Mind, Body, & Soul on Sunday.
The conference provided students in grades 4 through 12 with a host of workshops aligned to the Mind, Body & Soul theme of the conference. Workshops were offered by community-based organization partners and NECSD instructional and SEL professionals and focused on reading and writing, college and career pathways, nutrition, mindfulness, physical well-being, and body image and body safety.
Each student from My Sister’s Keeper was given a grade-level appropriate book, a reflection journal, and hygiene and health products.
There were over 50 student participants in attendance for the conference.
