2015 Annual Awards Breakfast Catalyst for Positive Change

catalyst invitation Syntero’s annual awards breakfast will be held on Friday, May 1, 2015 from 7:30am-8:45am at the Boathouse at Confluence Park.  This historical fundraiser supports our school based services which include prevention, teacher trainings and consultation, parent education and coaching, specialized groups for at risk students, grief response teams, and trauma services.  The event was created in 1992 to honor a group of outstanding high school students for their contributions to the community.

This breakfast ceremony, “Catalyst for Positive Change” will focus on students who: are involved in making the lives of others better; are actively involved in their community at large; embody the characteristics of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.  Ninty students from nineteen participating high schools will receive this special recognition along with their parents and school administrators.  Local businesses and civic leaders will also join us to pay tribute to these impressive students.

Too often our clients are faced with problems and risks such as violence, grief and loss, alcohol and other drugs, depression, divorce, and stress.  Your support of this event will help directly in the delivery of prevention, treatment, and education services.  These programs help our clients become catalysts for change in their own lives and on the road to recovery and overall health and wellness.
