Perry County Community Task Force

Helping today's youth become tomorrow's leaders

Junior Senior Conference

So many work together to make this conference possible.  We would like to thank everyone who is a part of this conference and all of those who help to bring it all together.  Please know that your efforts are helping the Perry County youth make wise choices in their life.

The Junior/Senior Conference originated in 1998, as a prevention program to help eliminate/reduce the high number of vehicular accidents among youth during the high risk time of prom/graduation.  Every year the Task Force coordinates this conference for all of the junior and senior students in Perry County.  

Teens from the community also assist in the planning of this yearly event, which is held at the Perry Park Center, during the early spring. The conference usually consists of a variety of guest speakers, videos, and a docu-drama, where a mock crash scene is set up in the city park.  The aim is to assist youth in making responsible choices during this high-risk time in their lives.
