FAYETTEVILLE, NC (July 8, 2019) – Back-to-School, Inc. is sponsoring the annual Back-to-School Teen Explosion Conference© on Saturday, August 3, 2019 at the Cliffdale Recreation Center, 10:00am-2:00pm. The end of summer vacation can be tough for teens. Going back to school means adjusting back to academic life, meeting project deadlines, and giving up free time and sleeping in. But rebooting the brain after summer learning loss is important too. The purpose of the Conference is to provide an annual end of summer event that encourages teenagers to plan for a successful school year and apply themselves at the highest level upon going back to school.

The Back-to-School Teen Explosion Conference provides an opportunity, in advance, for teens to get mentally ready for school before it starts, and we seek to help ease the transition by providing interactive teen focused topics and activities to gear students up for a successful school year. The focus this year is on academic mindsets, topics will include learning strategies, academic behaviors, perseverance and grit, which are critical skills to increase school success. Back-to-School, Inc and its partners understand what matters to teens, and we have designed a curriculum with the teen in mind.”

Premier Sponsors for the Back-to-School Teen Explosion Conference© include The City of Fayetteville, Fayetteville/Cumberland Parks & Recreation, T.
