The CASS and Van Buren County Substance Abuse Task Force invite you and 4 students to participate in a 2 day student leadership conference.

Our keynote speaker is Nigel Wrangham, an innovator in prevention and education. Nigel has developed a unique, customized leadership training for youth. He has taught upper-division courses in psychopharmacology, media studies, human sexuality and community organizing at the University of Oregon, and works with groups of young people and their allies to help them influence policy, advocate for social change, and summon the courage to act consciously from their core principles. Currently, Nigel is working with Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) and the state of Oregon Department of Human Services developing curriculum and training presenters in youth leadership and sexuality education. He has taught, facilitated retreats and coordinated trainings in over 30 states. A film narrator and freelance artist, Nigel recently spent six months in equatorial Africa photographing chimpanzees in the wild and working with local village children in forest conservation.
