1st May - First Annual TeenThrive Earth Fest a Huge Success!

TeenThrive's First Annual Earth Fest was a huge success, with over 250 people having fun while learning how they can help heal the planet.  Teenagers from as far away as Modesto came to The Marina Technology Cluster on April 29th to build and race solar powered cars, learn how to make biodiesel fuel, discover water saving techniques, and launch their own green businesses. TeenThrive's First Annual Earth Fest was a huge success, with over 250 people having fun while learning how they can help heal the planet. Teenagers from as far away as Modesto came to The Marina Technology Cluster in late April to build and race solar powered cars, learn how to make biodiesel fuel, discover water saving techniques, and launch their own green businesses.

Dozens of participants "paid it forward" and took time out from the festivities to provide their input to a brand new website for teens who want to make a difference in our world. www.teenthrive.com is where the next generation of leaders can vie for college scholarships, discover "green" schools, get great ideas for community service projects and communicate with like-minded young adults.

"The future is in the hands of the teens," said Sam Adelson, 19. The California State University of Monterey Bay student was one of several dozen volunteers who helped make the First Annual event a success. "The planet is sick and we need to try our hardest to be sustainable in our practices everyday."
