A one-day symposium aimed at educating teenagers about gang violence, bullying, drugs and school dropout issues will be held at Fresno City College on Saturday (April 26).

Organized by Take a Stand Committee, the free event "Choices and Consequences" is open to students aged 13-19. The goal of the program is to provide outreach, support and informational mediums to address teenagers who are facing troubling situations.

Discussion panels and workshops will be held throughout the day, including keynote speaker Kevin Grant, a California Peace Prize winner from Oakland. Vendors will also be onsite, offering resources about jobs, training, anger management and lifestyle choices.
