On Sept. 13-14, seven youth and chaperones from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Danville Area attended the Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference. The conference featured the Youth Café, designed for youth ages 13 to 18. Classes included youth engagement and how to get college scholarships. Every morning, there were speakers at breakfast, and there was a black-tie gala that included dinner, a comedian and a dance. The next morning, the group visited Center on the Square to tour the aquarium, play arcade games and feast on candy and popcorn. The final event was the awards luncheon.
