Students from the Waterford Committed program hosted a conference for the 8th Graders at Waterford Junior High School on Thursday, February 7, 2020. The goal of the conference was to introduce the Committed program to our future high school students and encourage living a healthy lifestyle. Committed is based on the work of John Underwood and the National Life of an Athlete/Human Performance Project. The day started off with a concert by local artist Ava Grace who is using her talents as part of the local Peer Recovery Art Project. Then the students went off to a series of workshops planned and presented by students from Waterford High School. Workshops included information on Substance Use and Mental Health, Making the Most out of High School, How to deal with Stress, and the importance of respecting each other. Another workshop on leadership, teamwork, and communication was presented by former US Navy SEAL Anthony Page from Applied Performance Sciences. The conference was sponsored by Stanislaus County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services and supported by the Waterford Unified School District.
