About 40 community leaders gathered at the Hansen Library on Sewickley Academy's campus last week to screen a documentary about the stresses that teens are under, entitled "Race to Nowhere." The event, which was a collaboration between Sewickley Academy, Youth Connect, Osborne Elementary, and Child Health Association of Sewickley, prompted a lot of good discussion about the drive to succeed in school and the ramifications of too much pressure. Look for more news about the film in the coming weeks.
Many thanks go out to the event partners, as well as Erin Harte, a local parent, for bringing the documentary to the attention of the Youth Connect Steering Committee. For more details about the movie, check out http://www.racetonowhere.com/.
